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.

“Great atmosphere. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2015 NEW

Everything in Scotland is worth it.

Parks castles museums pubs and principally the Scottish friendly attitude and their great sense of humor.


So... Don't miss anything.

And don't mind the cold wind. It reinvigorating. Consider a good pub in the evening and you'll be good.

“A lovely way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2015 NEW

I loved the way you can just wander around this part of the city and relax on a lovely sunny day and take yourself away from the bustle of the high street

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2015 NEW

As Arthur's Seat is located in the park, you can't really miss this location. Lovely scenery & ruins to look at if you manage to find 5 minutes with no rain!

“A Great break from the City.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2015 NEW

Great for those who like to get out of the city for a bit. Perfect views of the city and surrounds. Not a leisurely walk if you plan on going to the top but still a good walk if you only go half way.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2015 NEW

We were lucky to be in Edinburgh just after the Palace reopened to the public. It was fun to see where the Queen stays when she comes to Edinburgh. You don't get to see the entire palace, but parts of it and the gardens are beautiful.
