Arthur’s Seat and Duddingston Village

We took a taxi to the car park by Duddingston Loch as we planned to hike to the top of Arthur’s Seat. Hike is an exaggeration. It’s just an uphill walk.


When we got to the top, Scott’s altimetre on his Swiss army knife said we were 800 feet below sea level. Something told me that wasn’t right.
The views from Arthur’s Seat were great.

Looking northeast

We headed back down the road way into Duddingston Village and to the Sheep’s Heid Pub, the oldest pub in greater Edinburgh.
Robin joined us for lunch.
After lunch, we walked back to Edinburgh and went through the abandoned railway tunnel by Prestonfield golf course.

We spent the rest of the day shopping then had an early supper at our flat. Robin went back to his flat to study.
