Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano which is the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh, Scotland, which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated just to the east of the city centre, about…
Absolutely stunning views if you can make it to the top! If not, just enjoy a walk around the glorious Holyrood Park and grab an ice-cream!
Walk up our ancient volcano situated in Holyrood Park to get a great view of the city. It's 241 metres high and steep in places, so you need good shoes! Combine with a visit to Holyrood Palace or Dynamic Earth.
Choose a sunny day but bring layers as it is always windy at the top! Takes 35-50 minutes to climb to the top.
Arthur's seat overlooks Holyrood park and if you have the energy to walk up it then it offers amazing views of the city. An easier walk is Salisbury Cragg which is not as high as Arthur's seat and still offers amazing views.
Great views, variety of routes to the top for all abilities,escape the busy city streets.

Point of Interest
“Historic landmark in the heart of Edinburgh, sitting on top of an extinct volcano. Steeped in history, the Scottish Crown Jewels and the Stone of Destiny are on display. ”
“Ancient and modern history of Scotland spanning nature to politics. Vast collection - start at the top and work your way down if you prefer recent history (as I do) as you will need a lot of time to enjoy it all. 30 minutes walk from here.”
“Free to visit . A lovely walk on a sunny day with warm tropical glasshouses when the weather is more typically Scottish. Regular special exhibitions, indoor and outdoor cafes and a must if you love trees and plants.”
“Home to Scotland's outstanding collection of modern and contemporary art not to mention some beautifully sculpted grounds.”
“Calton hill is part of the World Heritage site and is beyond the east end of Princes Street. It is the perfect place for photography of views over the whole city and has often been used by painters to capture the city. The Scottish Parliament (an amazing modern building) and Holyrood Palace lie at the foot of the hill. On the hill are the National Monument, the Nelson Monument, the Robert Burns Monument and the City Observatory. ”
