Arthur's Seat. Salisbury Crags. Edinburgh Skyline.
A solo day trip through to Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, and one sometimes referred to as the "Athens of the North", mainly due to its cultural achievements, the monument on Calton Hill resembling the Acropolis,, but also because Edinburgh is blessed with a city centre of steep braes topped by plugs and ancient vents with a roller coaster skyline of steep basalt cliffs culminating in an 822 foot much studied volcano.
An appropriate matching video from Kate Bush and the talented MrMarrs reaching equally spectacular heights in the mountains.
