Holyrood & Arthur’s Seat

Facing the imposing royal palace of Holyroodhouse at the foot of the Royal Mile, a once near-derelict district has been transformed by the construction of the Scottish Parliament Building. Holyrood Park, a former hunting ground of Scottish monarchs centred on the miniature mountain of Arthur’s Seat, allows Edinburghers to enjoy a little bit of wilderness in the heart of the city.
