If you are looking for the ultimate view of Edinburgh, then look no further than Arthur’s Seat. Visible from around the city, it’s the highest point of Holyrood Park, which is just a stone’s throw from Edinburgh city centre.
Arthur’s Seat is an ancient volcano and therefore its terrain is rocky, steep and in some places the paths are undefined, so don’t make the same mistake as me in wearing unsuitable footwear if you intend to climb it!
You can choose to either walk the entire way up to the summit, or you can drive to the carpark near the top and walk the remaining 10-15 minutes or so, which is what we did as we were on our way out of the city.
From the summit, there are incredible panoramic views across Edinburgh city and beyond to be enjoyed. If you visit the Edinburgh, it is an experience that is not to be missed.
