Almost Arthur's Seat

Yesterday J wanted to go for a walk. I wanted to work on the computer. An hour later ...

Here we are at the bottom of the hill, about to walk to the top of Arthur's seat.

Harrumph. Tourists.

Found out later that this called the Salisbury Crags:
When we got to the crags we were surprised to see it level off.

And even more surprised to see the path go downhill.
Turns out what we had thought of as Arthur's Seat is actually the top of Salisbury Crags, and that this hill top in the distance is actually Arthur's seat.
Hmmm. By this time we were tired and weren't really up for more walking. Maybe next time we'll get there ...


  1. Sometimes the attempt is the adventure...:-)) Thanks for sharing the photos with us!

  2. What beautiful views!

  3. I totally want to go hiking..... Will deffinately check Salisbury area out for a furture trip. And be a tourist :-)
    Just been hiking in the Snowdonia area. Loved every minute of it.

  4. Thanks for the comments Poetess and Worsted :)

    SewDanish - I haven't been to Wales yet! But Snowdonia is on my list of places to see. I might have to pick your brains about it some time...

  5. I love Edinburgh!
