I Love Edinburgh!

Travels with the Blonde Coyote

Now this is my kind of city! Edinburgh is built on the remains of an extinct volcano. The main outlet of the volcano, known as Arthur’s Seat, towers above Old Town, while Edinburgh Castle sits on a second vent of indomitable black rock. Most of this city is carved out of dark, mafic dolerite. I love cities where the Earth is apparent underfoot, unconcealed by an overdose of concrete.

Stay tuned for another view of the city from the Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat!
