David Hume was born in Edinburgh back in 1711, and he died here in 1776. He loved his hometown, and he knew that people needed a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. So, he worked to set up and preserve a park area called Calton Hill just on the outskirts of the city center for people to take a stroll, sit, breathe in fresh air, and enjoy fabulous vistas of central Edinburgh. Hume was particularly fond of a trail that leads up and down the hill. . .today it is known as ‘Hume Walk,’ and the trail remains for you to enjoy today and tomorrow and tomorrow and so on and so forth. We are lucky that the sun is out today, the breezes are light, the air is mild, and the views are as magical as ever. Come to Edinburgh some day and tred on the very path that David Hume walked upon. . .it will make you just a tiny bit smarter than you are right now, I promise.
