Explore Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Park in a guided walking tour with Angus Miller. Most people are interested in climbing to the summit of Arthur’s Seat, but there are many options for less strenuous walks, and I aim to offer you a safe and interesting tour that will allow you to enjoy the highlights of Holyrood Park. There’s no minimum number, I can do a tour for one person or for twenty-five.
From the meeting point near the Scottish Parliament, we will take a path that gradually climbs towards the summit of Arthur’s Seat. Along the way there are plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the view, and to find out how the landscape has formed, the human history of the area, and the wildlife that lives there today.
The paths are rough in places, and even if we decide not to go all the way to the summit you will get great views, fresh air and a good walk! There are a variety of routes to descend back to the starting point, including steep paths and more gentle, longer routes. We will decide on the day what the best option is. Tours generally last about two hours. Please note there are no toilets or other facilities in the park.
