Arthur's Seat, the Mountain in the City; contact and continuity with the natural world and the culture of our forefathers.
Kellan MacInnes and Stuart McHardy reflect on the importance of Edinburgh’s mountain in the city as both a point of contact with wildness and the natural world as well a gateway to Scotland and its history. Kellan MacInnes, author of Caleb’s List, Climbing the Scottish mountains visible from Arthur’s Seat shares his experience of discovering the healing power of Scotland’s wild land while Stuart McHardy, author of Arthur’s Seat: Journeys and Evocations explores the beliefs and mythology associated with Edinburgh’s unique mountain in the city.
