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.

Reviewed April 27, 2013

Not really apart from what I already stated , It is goo for a nice sturdy walk I have not been for a few years. Not good for young kids as it can be dangerous

“Well worth the effort”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

A must for every visitor to Edinburgh - choose your
days carefully to ensure you have views almost to England and the Highlands - round trip took about 1.5 hrs from the parliament blg at a very steady pace

“Good views”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

An easy path to the centre section from the Pool end though I turned back 2/3rds of the way along as the path narrowed and my leather shoes were not that suitable! Others were taking the paths to the top!
