walking Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh

In (relatively) good weather, this is one of the great urban walks of the world.

I had a lovely, mellow morning up there.

Arthur’s Seat is the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park, a remarkably wild piece of highland landscape in the centre of the city of Edinburgh, about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 251 m (823.5 feet), provides excellent panoramic views of the city, is quite easy to climb, and is a popular walk. …

The hill bears a strong resemblance to the Cavehill in Belfast in terms of its geology and proximity to a major urban site. …



Arthurs Seat, Victoria, Australia was named after the hill in Edinburgh.
