BACKGROUND

Here’s what the Lonely Planet – Great Britain chapter on Edinburgh has to say about Arthur’s Seat:

“In Holyrood Park, Edinburgh is blessed with a little bit of wilderness in the heart of the city. The former hunting ground of Scottish monarchs, the park covers 263 hectares of varied landscape, including crags, moorland and loch.

The highest point is the 251m summit of Arthur’s Seat, the deeply eroded remnant of a long-extinct volcano. Holyrood park can be circumnavigated by car or bike along Queen’s Dr (it is closed to motorized traffic on Sunday), and you can hike from Holyrood to the summit in around 45 minutes.”
