Scotland: A visit to Arthur’s Seat

Today our group ventured out of Glasgow and headed to the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. The day began with touring the main Scottish Rugby Stadium and was was followed by climbing up Arthur’s Seat. Arthur’s Seat is one of the four hill forts and dates back about 2,000 years. I think today was one of my favorite days.

It was snowing when we started the climb and by the time we got to the top, the clouds had cleared and there was a beautiful view of the city.

We toured St. Andrew’s Golf Course on Monday and the view from the top of the hill revealed a different perspective to view the course way beyond the sea and other hills. I felt a huge sense of accomplishment getting to the top! The rest of the day included various tours and sightseeing, but the climb was definitely the highlight! (at least for me) I would recommend climbing Arthur’s Seat to anyone who is up for a bit of a challenge and some fun!
