Arthur's Seat is the remnants of an extinct volcano and now stands at 251 metres high, imposing itself over Holyrood Park and is the perfect spot to kick-off your day two itinerary. Iconic in Edinburgh, it offers stunning views over the city plus vistas over the Pentland Hills and Forth Bridges to the west, Fife to the north and east towards North Berwick. There are a number of routes to the summit from Holyrood Park, with the most popular one also taking in the impressive Salisbury Crags. Whatever route you take, please take due consideration to your safety. All routes up Arthur's Seat and the summit itself offers endless photo opportunities - you will see why it's a popular attraction for those visiting Edinburgh! (Photo Credit: Pascale Amez,
