View of Arthur's Seat from Nelson's Tower. Palace of Holyroodhouse (leftmost) and Scottish Parliament (midle) in the foreground.
Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills in Scotland which form most of Holyrood Park. It is situated in the centre of the city of Edinburgh, about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill itself rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m (822 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch. At a spur of the hill, Salisbury Crags has historically been a rock climbing venue with routes of various degrees of difficulty, due to hazards rock climbing is now restricted to the South Quarry and a free permit is required.

Well taken pic showing the city below the hills. The city is very well developed. The clouds are looking very good.
Thanks for sharing.
