People are always searching for that elusive hangover cure. Whether its a lemon and ginger juice shot from some indie cafe or a traditional English fry up; everyone has their own ideas when it comes to recovering from a big night out.
The best cure in Edinburgh? Climbing up Arthur's Seat.
The steep path and strong wind is enough to cure even the worst hangovers.
Jackets were tied round waists, and we powered up the hill in T-shirts and sunnies. After a Summer in which a couple of lengths in a pool had been the sum total of my physical exercise, my fitness, or rather lack of, was put to the test.
Rather than follow the path like any normal, sane person would have done, we decided to take a short cut.
Our 'short cut' ended up being a rocky dried river bed, that's probably a mini waterfall when it rains.
Pretty obvious that none of us study geography.
After sliding down on our bums for 15 minutes, we managed to make it back to the marked path unharmed.
Hangover cured we headed back to halls for a well deserved cup of tea.
Next time I think I'll just stick to the designated route.
