I'd been wanting to climb all Edinburgh's Seven Hills and a beautiful sunny day and a willing friend meant that today's walk would complete the seven.
Up Arthur's Seat first for some windy views, then through the graveyard to Calton Hill and the Trig Point before braving the city centre and finishing at the Castle.
