Today is the summer solstice, so I headed up to Arthur's Seat to attempt to take some photos.
For those who don't know, Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano which is considered the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh. Hill fort defences are visible round the main massif of Arthur's Seat at Dunsapie Hill and above Samson's Ribs, in the latter cases certainly of prehistoric date. These forts are likely to have been centres of power of the Votadini, who were the subject of the poem Y Gododdin which is thought to have been written about 600 ADin their hillfort on Edinburgh castle crag.
The weather was dry, if slightly overcast on the walk up. However, in true Scottish fashion about 10 minutes before sun rise the rain started. This light drizzle promptly cleared after a minute or two, leaving the gathered small crowd to be able to see quite a nice sun rise.
