So just as I come charging in here telling you how excellent Edinburgh is, I want to tell you why it can be good to escape the city.
Fresh air and the countryside and mountains are only a couple of hours away. If study or work feels like a slog, I highly recommend a stomp up a mountain to clear the head. This weekend, I climbed Sgot Gaoith, a mountain (classified as a ‘Munro’ due to being over 914m) near the highland town of Aviemore. Scottish winter – pah! Sub-zero temperatures make it all the more fun.
My friend also recorded parts with his drone. Isn’t technology great?
