Scotland // Arthur's Seat

Arthur's Seat was a hike that started just five minutes from where we were staying in Edinburgh. It had been raining all day, and of course, the fog was thick. So, with the first sign of the fog clearing, we headed up to the top of the mountain.

It was a beautiful hike, again with lots of vivid greenery and cold water - at one point, the trail was an actual stream.
As we hiked up to the summit, it got colder and windier. I started sniffing and shivering, and brought my mountain hardware jacket closer to my body. Did I mention that it was July?!
It quickly became even more eery when the fog began to set in even thicker, making it so that we could only see a few feet in front of us. Once at the summit, we realized that the fog was so dense it had made our hair dripping with water.

Although we were freezing, the hike was incredible - Definitely worth it.
