Famous for their renowned shortcakes and the slightly questionable meal choice of Haggis, Edinburgh is a city steeped in history. Home to the Royal Botanic Garden and with a number of educational and inspirational museums within its walls, Edinburgh is a breath of fresh air for those looking for fun filled days out.
One such landmark that you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere in the UK is Arthur’s Seat, the tallest of Edinburgh’s seven hills and is also the site of an extinct volcano system which is over 350 million years old. Viewing the hills from certain angles make Arthur’s Seat resemble a lion lying down with its head raised.
Should you wish to learn more about Arthur’s Seat you can head over to Our Dynamic Earth where you can see the history of how the hills and cliffs around Edinburgh were formed, including information about our own planet’s tectonics and weather evolution that led to the formation of Arthur’s Seat.
