After we got back from Glasgow to Edinburgh, we had dinner at a chippy. (The nice thing about the UK is that it’s so veg-friendly that even at a fish and chips place, I can still find a veggie burger!) At that point, it was about 8:30. Dom’s flatmate Mike joined us and our next stop was Arthur’s Seat, which is a really tall hill overlooking Edinburgh and the surrounding area. For anyone who’s seen One Day, that’s the hill that Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess went to at the end of the film.
It took about an hour to climb to the very top. Because it was dark and muddy, we had to climb more slowly than we would have otherwise. But it was still so much fun, and we had such a nice view of the city all lit up at night. It was cloudy, but as we had climbed, the sky had cleared so that we could see all of the stars. It was really windy at the top, so we only hung around for a little bit to take some photos and then headed down and back to Dom’s flat.
