This evening, I am posting information on today’s small group hike between Dundonald and Troon in South Ayrshire, S.W. Scotland. Distance covered was about seven miles.
This evening, I am posting information on Holyrood Park in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The park comprises an extensive open space featuring small lochs (lakes) but is essentially hilly with the peak, Arthur’s Seat, sitting at the centre at a height of 251 metres/823 feet. Arthur’s Seat and adjacent area is of volcanic origin dating back 310m-360m years when Scotland was situated near to the equator. There is also an exposed cliff edge named Salisbury Crags which was formed slightly later than Arthur’s Seat by magma flowing from deep inside the earth.
