Now this is what I was looking forward to in Edinburgh, a little but very steep walk to the top of Arthur's Seat. I wasn't expecting it to be so steep!!!!! It really is an adventure for a city center walk. On our day here the weather had closed in a little so there were no spectacular views. This instead gave it even more of a mountainous feeling being in the cloud which was moving fast revealing the summit at times the closer we got.
I just wish we had something like Arthur's Seat in Cleethorpes, I would make it a daily routine to walk to the summit.
