ARTHUR'S SEAT - The view makes it worth it! Arthur's Seat Review

No matter where in Edinburgh you stand, walk, drive or sit... Arthur's Seat WILL catch your eye.

To get there walk down the Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace. Turn right after the parliament and it's in front of you. Then start climbing! :)
When at the top you will realise it was worth the sweat and hard work! The view is amazing as long its not a cloudy day!

Just watch out for the crazy BMX-ers riding their bikes down the hill about 100000 km/hour... Also Arthur's Seat is a popular place for dog owner's - keep that it mind if you're scared of dogs because there's always a few running free...

Did you know???
Myths say there are secret tunnels from Edinburgh castle to Holyrood palace and apparently they're even under Arthur's Seat...

Address: End of Royal Mile

Directions: Next to Holyrood Palace and the Parliament
