Getting to Grips with ‘Arthurs Seat’ Edinburgh

On Sunday post my exciting adventure to the Madonna MDNA concert in Edinburgh (To be blogged about) I thought it would be rather ‘Seating’ to challenge a climb up Edinburgh’s famous ‘Arthurs Seat’

We took the Tartan seated bus into Edinburgh and made the walk towards Holyrood Park, we decided to start the climb by walking up the Salisbury Crag side then on up to Arthurs Seat to gain a beautiful panoramic views of Edinburgh.  Below is my adventures to Arthur’s Seat in Pictures. More about Arthurs seat and Salisbury crag HERE
