From Ramesh from Voxtrot's blog:

During the day I would walk take brisk walks to the top of the hill,
and often experienced a similar sensation to that of viewing Arthur's
seat, the beautiful land mass which rises over Edinburgh. Arthur's Seat
is perhaps the most arresting inter-city land form I have ever seen, to
stand on it is to feel the past and present converging at once. This is
sort of the essence of Edinburgh, at least through the eyes of a
foreign national.

I just loved this.
