Crowds of people are to be feared, but on the place itself
you will be mostly alone. The travel guide describes it in this case definitely
appropriate: .. one of the most delightful experiences which Edinburgh
can offer, is to observe the sunset over the Highland mountains from the
summit of Arthur's Seat, and then to walk down in the shade of the
mountain in a sea of lights ..
At the end a personal hint: a look at the photos with music in the ears
brings more enjoyment and leads you perhaps in another world.
