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.

“A must!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

If you're visiting Edinburgh one thing you must do, no matter how hard or tough you think it might be; get that motivation in you. Grab a bottle of water and maybe a sandwich if you want to chill with Arthur. Amazing scenery and lots to see. It's also not too far from the Royal mile which will lead you into Edinburgh's City Centre. P.S a camera would also come in handy for memories you want to share ;)
