And, at certain Distances from it, by the Hills of Pentland, Corstorphine, Caldton, Arthur's-seat, and Salisbury craigs. placed as it were by Nature, as so many Fences against the impetuous Blasts of violent Storms of Wind from the South-west, West, North-west, North-east and South-east. which often rage to a great Degree in these Parts." -- William Maitland, The History of Edinburgh from its Foundation to the present time, 1753
