Owner description: Holyrood Park is a unique historic landscape in the heart of the city, whose dramatic crags and hills give Edinburgh its distinctive skyline. Within the park is a wealth of history and archaeology spanning thousands of years. Arthur's Seat is one of four hill forts, dating from around 2,000 years ago. 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.

Me and my girlfriend went there today. Prepare for a lot of walking. The view of Edinburgh from the hill was amazing. A must see attraction.

“Be careful !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

aye great adventure - park at bottom off hill - acces off London road......
brilliant photo ops from top - but be careful - could easily have a fall/injury on this day out - nothing really that risky just perhaps keep close eye on nippers

“a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The Queens palace in Edinburgh. Athough most rooms are open and interesting, it is Queen Mary's quarters that are the most historic and interesting. Worth spending some time in the garden in nice weather
