Always on the lookout for local quiz stuff, I climbed Arthur’s Seat last week to see if I could answer the question:
Question: Can you see both Forth Bridges from the Top of Arthur’s Seat?
The answer is: yes you can, in fact you don’t have to go that far, you can see them both from even from the top of Sailsbury Crags. But anyway – its a nice little local geography question.
Meanwhle, I’ve had a harder time establishing the origin of Arthur. Whose seat is it anyway? Who is Arthur? The Wikipedia page isn’t too helpful, saying it might be to do with King Arthur and providing an incomplete (as I write) reference about the name being a corruption of Archer’s Seat.
Does anyone know for sure?
