Experience a proper hill walk in the heart of the city. Arthur's Seat's rocky summit towers over Edinburgh, with fabulous views in all directions, and the extensive parkland surrounding it is an oasis of calm as a retreat from the busy city. Arthur's Seat is the highest of a group of hills, formed from the remains of a volcano, that make up Holyrood Park. The summit is 251 metres high and surprisingly rocky and wild for a hill in the centre of a major city. Although it is popular, it still feels like a real get away from it all place.

It was tough for beginners but absolutely worth it. So much fun with the varying terrain and altitudes but still very doable with its well marked paths. Absolutely gorgeous views!

Great trail. Rugged in places, but mostly easy. An excellent way to see Edinburgh.
