Arthur's Seat Jasper Sterling Silver Pendant
Every year thousands of people make the walk up Arthur's Seat, to the highest point on the grass covered remains of an ancient volcano which last erupted 350 million years ago. The views of Edinburgh from Arthur's Seat are spectacular, and well worth the climb! Although origins of the name are uncertain, some claim there are links between Edinburgh and the legendary King Arthur, and that Arthur's Seat may well have been the site of Camelot. It has also been proposed that the name was a corruption of Àrd-na-Said, implying the "Height of Arrows", which over the years became Arthur's Seat, perhaps via "Archer's Seat".
