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.

Very pretty, the furnishing and paintings were great. The
chapel was beautiful. Liked learning about the Queen's and seeing the jewelry.

Great place to hike and enjoy the view from the bluff. We did it several times as it was a good workout.

If the weather is nice this is a lovely place to come, you could have a picnic go for walks. It's nicely done up and when we went it was quite quiet, though they were preparing the half marathon route so looked a bit different to normal!

It shows a different side to Edinburgh.

Excellent views, how lovely to have so much green space in the middle of Edinburgh. Wear good shoes, and take your dogs--they loved it!
