Down to the North; Up to the Top 上北遊山頂

There's two easily accessible hills in Edinburgh and I guess if I lived nearby I'd definitely go hiking every day. The weather was super perfect for hiking! The first hill that I went to was a huge park called Holyrood Park. This park is more than just a park, it offers us an amazing view from all the angles, and where the top point is well-known as Arthur's Seat. It took me an hour to climb up there from the starting point of the main walking path. I'd say it's totally worth the climb! The view was as amazing as heaven, probably because it was a sunny day. So don't go up there if the weather's bad otherwise it would ruin your day! LOL

在英國Edinburgh 愛丁堡有兩座很容易到的山,我在想如果我住在附近的話,我應該會每天去爬一下!這天的天氣超級完美,去爬山不錯喔!第一個我去的山是在一個很大的「公園」裡面,叫Holyrood Park 荷里路德公園。我覺得這個公園不只是一個公園那麼簡單…… 它讓我們看到愛丁堡不同角度的美景!最重要的是這裡的最高點Arthur's Seat 亞瑟的座位讓我們看到更多更厲害的!我從主山道爬上去大概用了一個多小時,可以說是非常值得!那個景簡直美到不像話!當然也是天氣的關係喔!所以千萬不要在天氣不好的時候上去,不然就破壞了對美景的想像了。

There's also something that I didn't expect to see when I was on the way to the famous Arthur's Seat which was the Saint Anthony's Chapel Ruins. I saw loads of huge rocks from far and I was super curious to find out what they were. Although there's only a few ruins there, the viewpoint was amazing too. I guess you could also check this out if you found this on your way up to the hills.

在上去那個厲害的亞瑟座位的路上,我無意中發現了一個東西,原來是Saint Anthony's Chapel Ruins 聖安東尼教堂遺址。我其實是在遠處看到了一大堆爛石,充滿好奇心的我當然要爬過去看看到底是什麼東西來的啦!雖然遺址不是很多很大,但是從這裡看的風景也很不錯喔。所以如果你們上山的時候剛好有經過的話也可以來看看喔。

And finally... finally I felt like I was on top of the world! Here was getting busier later on so if you could make it early, make it even earlier. This was actually one of the best views that I'd never forget in my whole life.


The second hill that I went up to was Calton Hill. This one is a lot closer to the centre and it's super easy to climb I swear! It only took me 5 minutes or so to get up to the top. I'm not sure if you would call it hiking or not. LOL Therefore, the view wasn't as spectacular as the Arther's Seat... well, it's proven that you get what you "pay".

我去的第二座山是Calton Hill 卡爾頓山。這座山跟市中心還挺近的,而且沒有在說笑,超級容易爬的!我就好像用了大概五分鐘的時間便到了最高點了…… 所以我根本不太確定我到底是不是在爬山哈哈。所以啦,這裡看到的風景也就不能跟亞瑟的座位比較了。畢竟…… 你付出你所得到的哈哈。

I actually believed that Calton Hill shouldn't be named as a hill but more like a park, and the Holyrood Park should be named as a hill instead... anyway, Calton Hill is still worth a visit because, why not? It won't take you long though.

我其實認為卡爾頓山不應該叫山,因為它比較像一個公園。而荷里路德公園也不應該叫公園,因為它明明就是一座山啊…… 無論如何,卡爾頓山還是很值得一去的!為什麼?為什麼不?反正不會花你太多的時間嘛哈哈!

I enjoyed myself very much today and I will definitely return if I had a chance! I love Edinburgh so much! It's such a beautiful comfy city to stay, or probably live in! See you again soon.
