Location: Holyrood Park, Edinburgh

24 hours


Arguably possessing the best views in Edinburgh, Arthur's Seat is the largest of the hills which make up part of the city's Holyrood Park. The Royal Park's varying terrains make for different degrees of difficulty in getting to the top, with the east offering the simplest route while rock climbers can attempt a more active ascend from the South Quarry. Holyrood Park is notable for its many hills, crags and lochs, attracting many visitors who don't even need to leave Edinburgh to feel a million miles away from the busy city centre and enjoy this special rural retreat.
