Holyrood Park is on the doorstep of both of our holiday apartments (see www.holyroodparkselfcatering.co.uk) and is our favourite spot in Edinburgh. A piece of the country right in the heart of the city. Take a stroll, a walk, a jog, a run, a hike, a scramble or...just breathe! Enjoy.
Located at the highest point in Holyrood Park, Arthur’s Seat is a dormant volcano which gives incredible views of the city. It sits at 251 m above sea level and is a must visit spot for anyone traveling to Edinburgh.
"I am taking an evening walk with my sister towards Arthur’s Seat, the hill that overlooks my home city of Edinburgh. It is early October, and today, the ancient mound is bathed in the rusty rays of fading summer." Article & photos by Robbie Lawrence. Now on TOAST Travels.
