Owner description: Arthur's Seat is one of four hill forts, dating from around 2,000 years ago. Situated within Holyrood Park, as well as it's rich cultural heritage, the park offers walks, solace, wildlife, volcanic geology and unparalleled vistas of the city from its many vantage points. The park has several Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) designations due to its exceptional range of grassland habitats and its internationally important volcanic geology. Ranger service on site.

If the weather is good then a walk up Arthur's Seat when in Edinburgh is a must. For those who want an easier option, there is a road leading up from the back. Lovely views over Edinburgh from the top.

We went the hard way up facing a near-vertical climb up some old stone steps only to get to the top and find a much easier incline! In any case it was worth it, beautiful views over all of Edinburgh and very romantic!
