About Arthur's Seat

No need to pack it to Hawaii to hike up a volcano - try conquering one right in the middle of Scotland! Arthur's Seat rises up 822 feet above sea level, right in the midst of modern Edinburgh. A clear day will reward those who brave the summit with spectacular views of everything within 100km, as well as a sunset like no other (though a blanket or two might be needed!). Admission is free, and maps detailing the degrees of difficulty of the various hiking trails are available from the visitor's center.
