Arthur's Seat

Holyrood Park

Two hundred and fifty metre-high Arthur's Seat is a craggy former volcano surrounded first by the three square kilometres of rugged moorland of Holyrood Park, and, beyond that, modern Edinburgh. Hike to the top from Queen's Drive, the tarred road that loops through the park, or take the slightly less elevated but equally spectacular walk along the Radical Road path at the foot of the imposing Salisbury Crags.
