It being a nice evening and willing accomplices we decided on Arthur’s Seat. After the inevitable tarmac and eschewing the gate squeeze we exited the main entrance of Pollock Halls and headed straight for Arthur’s Seat. To be a bit exotic we went up the Gutted Haddie, through the crowds on Arthur’s and attempted to name the mountains silhouetted on the horizon; followed the Mon Lunchtime handicap route (qv) over Nether, Crow, Dunsapie and Whinnie Hills, then switched to the Carnethy Handicap route.
Leaving 2 of the party at the col to return to KB the remainder did an out and back to the top of Salisbury Crags, then headed back to KB. A jolly good 6.65 miles in an hour and a half.
