Gorse is known for flowering all year round. I took this photo from Arthur's Seat yesterday.
Arthur's Seat is most of the year a peaceful place, ideal for enjoying the open air and dramatic scenery, and with excellent opportunities for seeing birds and mammals (most recently we saw a very large rabbit there!). On New Year's Day however it takes on a totally different atmosphere, as it is both a traditional setting for the residents of Edinburgh to take their first walk of the new year and also is the setting for the running and cycling legs of the Edinburgh New Year Triathlon.
