Edinburgh | Arthur's Seat

On one of our first mornings in Edinburgh we decided to bundle up and make our way past the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace to climb Arthur's Seat. I have to confess that this has been a dream of mine since reading the book One Day by David Nicholls. It was a blustery, COLD morning, but we made it to the top despite the wind's greatest efforts to blow us off the surface of the earth!

I loved the sense of unspoken camaraderie at the top. Though we were all strangers to each other, there was something to be said for the shared accomplishment of making it to the pinnacle of Arthur's Seat. I can't even imagine what it would be like to climb an actual mountain...
