Points of Interest


Viewing-point: In the 1990s, an information-board was erected at the top of Braid Hill, specifically describing the seven hills which make up the course. The prime mover of this initiative was John Bartholomew, of the famous map-making company.


Special Map: A special Seven Hills map has been commercially produced, and is available in many Edinburgh bookshops. It is produced by Harvey's of Doune (tel. 01786-841202), and gives a detailed depiction of each hill.

Fireworks: The organisers of Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations have taken up the seven hills theme; fireworks are set off from each of the hills at midnight, to welcome in the new year.


Music: In 1988, a musical composition by Neil Butterworth entitled "The Seven Hills March" was played at the tops of the 7 hills by members of the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra.


Television: The event has featured once on television. Channel 4's sport department appeared in 1997 — the only year the event has ever suffered from heavy rain!
