North Bridge and Salisbury Crags, Edinburgh, from the
north west by Adam Bruce Thomson (1885 -1976)
The hill behind the crags is called Arthur's Seat, referring to the
legend that King Arthur built his Camelot here. It is an extinct volcano.
Edinburgh is not top of the list when it comes to possible sites for
Camelot, but there are some other Scottish links to Arthurian legends,
including the possible Holy Grail castle in East Lothian. A 19th
"Historian" was convinced that Edinburgh is the true site of Jerusalem, and
he wrote several lengthy tomes on the subject. Arthur's Seat was supposed
to be Calvary Mount.
