My first time up the Seat, certainly wouldn't be the last, but this one will always be a special memory (along with the 2012 Seven Hills ascent...) as it was also the day I learned I'd be moving to Edinburgh. a fantastic Solstice day that capped a week of 20+ degree weather across the Central Belt. didn't even start up the hill until 9pm. surprisingly, except for the photographers at the top, hardly saw a soul...everyone else was probably in the Meadows, or down the pub...!

a real treasure in the heart of the city. especially nice on a Sunday when as an added bonus there are no cars to speak of.
