Arthur’s Seat voted top hill

ARTHUR’S Seat has been named one of the top ten hills in the UK to bike down by cycle star Sir Chris Hoy.

The Olympic gold medallist headed up a panel of judges choosing their top ten, who said they couldn’t rank them because they were so different.

Arthur’s Seat and Rest and Be Thankful were the only Scottish entries on the list.

The list was compiled as part of Sky Ride 2011, a campaign to get more people cycling.

Sir Chris said: “It’s a great feeling when you reach the top of a hill and get to ride down the other side. By finding the top ten hills to cycle down, I hope the British public will get back on their bikes and re-live that feeling.”
