Scottish Arthurs Seat
extinct volcano system
shaped by glaciers
my Arthurs Seat world
soars above Port Phillip Bay
close to a fault line
There is an Arthurs Seat in Scotland.
It has a volcanic heritage.
My Arthurs Seat mountain is on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.
It does not have a volcanic heritage.
It was named by Acting Lieutenant John Murray when he entered Port Phillip Bay in the ship Lady Nelson in February 1802.
Murray thought that it resembled the hill of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh (which was his home city).
My Arthurs Seat mountain is close to the Selwyn fault line running along the ridge of the peninsula.
The photo above is a view from my Arthurs Seat of the bay, looking down on Dromana.
