What people are saying:

Loved the long summer day and could walk slowly around the office until 9:10. Many people jog and have picnics and walks

Additional Information

Introduction

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.

Helpful Information

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.
