Arthur’s Seat

We took some new friends for a whistle-stop tour of the Mornington Peninsula yesterday.They are English and are hoping to move out here next year and so we tried to show them as much as possible in a day. Where better to view the Peninsular from than Arthur’s Seat?

It was a little hazy yesterday and so the picture didn’t come out as well as I had hoped. You are looking at McCrae i the bottom right hand side, following the coast past, Rosebud, Tootgarook, Rye, Blairgowie, Sorrento and finally Portsea at the tip of the Peninsula that you can see in the top right hand corner of the image.

The hill was named after the original Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh in 1802 when John Murray entered Port Phillip in the ship Lady Nelson, for its apparent resemblance to the one in his home-town.

At the top of the hill is a rather unusual lookout tower. Is it just me or is there something sinister looking about it?
