If you fancy stretching your legs then the walk up Arthurs seat is worth it, especially when the weather is nice. Views across the whole city and across the sea.
a lovely walk and way to see an overview of the city. Great views of the sunset and sunrise if you can make it to either.
Choose a sunny day but bring layers as it is always windy at the top! Takes 35-50 minutes to climb to the top.
A must-do in Edinburgh! Arthur's seat offers amazing views of Edinburgh and the hike up is fairly easy with multiple routes up to the summit. Cannot recommend doing this enough.
Point of Interest
“Quite expensive at £19 per adult but if you're interested in History then may be worth a look. You can walk up to the castle for free!”
“Great for kids and adults. Lots of stuffed animals and various other 'history bits'.”
“Free gardens worth a visit, and the historic glasshouses are great. You can pay to enter all the glasshouses but the Victorian one is free. Lovely walks and nice views from the the lawn looking to Edinburgh Castle. ”
“Outstanding collection of scottish modern and contemporary art. Lovely gardens also free entry”
