Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh


‘Last year, Rick Pear­son, RW sec­tion ed­i­tor, told me he was or­gan­is­ing a re­lay link­ing the high­est points of Lon­don’s 32 bor­oughs (see p36). Did I want to ar­range a sis­ter event in Edinburgh, my home city? And so the Edinburgh Peaks came into be­ing – a run con­nect­ing the tops of 17 city coun­cil wards, be­gin­ning in the south­west Pent­lands on East Cairn Hill (567m) and cul­mi­nat­ing un­der the Forth Rail Bridge in South Queens­ferry, 49 miles away. Here’s the view across to Arthur’s Seat (251m), the ninth sum­mit.’ To read the full ac­count of Edinburgh Peaks, visit runnersworld.co.uk/ ed­in­burgh­peaks
