If you saw on Instagram a few weeks ago I mentioned my trip to Bournemouth Beach and remarked that in addition to all of my international travels that I really do need to plan more trips within the United Kingdom. The Cotswolds and the Lake District are on the top of that list but I also want to go back to Scotland – my visit last year was too short!
You may recall I already posted about Edinburgh Castle but I wanted to share with out another of the cities highlights. I often find that the top rate tourist attraction in a city can be over rate and over hyped but Arthur’s Seat was truly great. Until a few years ago my parent’s would have laughed at you if you had told them their daughter voluntarily went on a hike but now that I sit in an office all day sometimes a few hours in nature can be a great reprieve.
Located in Holyrood Park Arthur’s Seat is the main peak and on my first day in Edinburgh we decided to head up to peak as the weather was going to be the nicest. There are quite a few ways up the mountain from serious hikes to one on a well trodden path.
