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.

This park is just lovely, spacious and quiet. While you're in this park, I suggest you go to Arthur's seat as well. Worth going at least once if you're in Edinburgh.

A really great place for quiet walks suitable for all ages and abilities. Parking available and other attractions close by. Well worth a visit.
The kind of place you never get fed up visiting.

Play ball games, walk the dog, enjoy a meander on level ground and have a picnic in the shadow of Arthur's Seat with, on occasion, the Windsors as next door neighbours.

Walk up to Arthur's Seat for a fine view of the city and surrounding country, a surprising retreat so close to the city centre.

Good for a workaround, large grounds with an option to go uo to Arthur's seat and other smaller hills. Hiking footwear not required unless you're going up to the peak.
