A rite of passage for all who visit Edinburgh, Scotland!! My absolute favorite place to hike as a student at Edinburgh University. 🏴 The views are beyond comparison and it’s the perfect place to chill and take some insta-worthy photos (but beware of strong winds blowing your stuff away 😆)
Hike takes about 2H and difficulty level is beginner-intermediate 🛤
This is one of the most memorable place I have ever been. Arthur’s seat in Edinburgh, The UK. This hill is absolutely stunning and breathtaking. I can spend hours just sitting here overlooking the city or enjoy the green spacious park. I enjoyed every second when I was here. Amazing. #wintergetaway
Before I arrived in Edinburgh, my impression of it stayed in countless movies. "ONE DAY", "Da Vinci Code", "Guess the Train"... and J. Rowling is here when he lives here, in The Elephant House, which is now a punching place, write " Harry Potter, a fantasy work that affects countless childhoods. How amazing is Edinburgh? Can become the place where so many movies happen, and install the twists and turns and the beautiful imagination. Let me take a look at this, the beauty and moving of this city far exceeds the picture of the movie. Arthur's Seat Arthur's Seat into the movie. Edinburgh is the location for many movies, and the most impressive of them, many of them are shot in Arthur's Seat. In this scene of the movie "One Day", Emma came here together the next day after meeting Dexter, and at the end of the film, Dexter and his daughter returned here. The 251-meter-high hill of Arthur's Seat offers a panoramic view of Edinburgh. It was formerly a volcano. Today, the sacred sea is transformed, the green is filled with the leisurely footsteps of the tourists, and driving on the road has a different feeling. .
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.
It is windy all year round at this park, dress according to the weather to make the most of your time outdoors. The winds on the hill are strong around sunrise and sunset, if you are planning to visit at these times pack warm clothing.
