Ascent Trip Report

On a visit to my home town, Edinburgh, I stayed with my friends Dave and Amber in their flat on Royal Park Terrace. On Saturday morning the weather was gorgeous so we strolled up the local highpoint, which is to be recommended for any visitors, being easy walking distance from the central train station. The views were as extensive as I have seen in 50+ ascents, stretching to the grampians and west highlands. North Berwick Law and the Bass Rock looked closr enough to reach out and touch.
