Dance Information:

Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh, viewed from Pollock Halls.

Arthur's Seat is the highest point in Edinburgh and the main peak of the group of hills about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. Like the rock on which the castle is built, it was formed by an extinct volcano system, which was eroded by a glacial movement. Arthur's Seat and the adjoining Salisbury Crags helped form the ideas of modern geology, when James Hutton observed that the sedimentary deposition and formation of the igneous rocks must have occurred at different ages and in different ways than the thinking of that time dictated.
