Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat

If it’s panoramic and breathtaking views you are after, the summit of Arthur’s Seat offers one of the best vantage points over the city. A prime pick for a walking adventure, you don’t have to venture out of the city, just follow one of the many trails up this 800-foot extinct volcano. Be warned, the route may be short, but it is challenging.

Finish your walk with a gentle amble through Holyrood Park, admire the wildlife to be found on the shores of the three lochs, St Margaret’s, Dunsapie and Duddingston.
