Arthur’s Seat in all its splendour

This stunning short film takes a bird’s-eye look at the glory that is Edinburgh’s very own volcano  – Arthur’s Seat.  At  251m above sea level, it is an iconic part of the city’s landscape, and affords magnificent views.  Hub and I have climbed it a couple of times, once as part of a marvellous light installation during the August festival.  We went up in the dark to view some trained runners wearing special light-enhanced suits making beautiful patterns on the ground below us – totally magical.

Enjoy! 😀

  1. It looks absolutely stunning and I bet the walk is a pleasantly challenging. Being up there in the night watching something arty must have been wonderful, Arthur is such an evocative name too!


    • It’s so amazing to have this feature in the heart of the city. You are right – the walk is perfect – not too strenuous, but enough of a pull to make you feel virtuous. And then of course, the views from the top are ample reward for the climb. The art installation was truly a never-to-be-forgotten experience. So creative and innovative; so magical and beautiful. I wish they would put it on every year. I can’t imagine ever tiring of such a thing.

      • A once in a lifetime experience must have felt awesome though, I wish I could have seen it but living through our memories is always a good thing as well. I want to walk up a big but extinct volcano now!
