American exchange student bitterly disappointed by lack of seat at Arthur’s Seat
After overcoming the surprisingly strenuous walk and ridiculous wind velocity, an exchange student from Boston faced a disappointment when reaching the summit of popular local landmark Arthur’s Seat.
“Due to the name of the hill, I at least expected to find a seat. I don’t think it’s a lot to ask. I even hoped for a coffee shop, but there is literally nothing there.”
The Bostonian continued, ‘I was wearing Lululemon, so it’s not like I could sit on the grass. Something needs to be done about the false advertising.’
Providing a slice of the country-side in a capital city as well as stunning views, a hike up to Arthurs Seat is often toted by locals and tourist alike as one of the best free things to do in Edinburgh.
Current data suggests that nearly 30% of all hikers on Arthur’s Seat expect to find a seat at the top. However, only 4% of that 30% later admit their folly in public, with the rest suffering in quiet humiliation.
