Only 20 mins walk from my flat takes you to Holyrood park and the starting point for an ascent of Edinburgh's mini mountain. You will need shoes/boots with a decent grip as its quite steep and can be slippery but its well worth it - the 360degree views are fantastic!
An extinct volcano in the middle of the city. The Crags were shaped in the Ice Age. It’s got three lochs, incredible views and is a bit of a lung buster if you choose to climb to its peak. It’s worth the climb! The views are outstanding and the descent is highly satisfying! Top tip: take a bottle…
Holyrood Park is a short walk from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. It is a 640 acre Royal Park adjacent to Holyrood Palace. The park’s highest point is Arthur's Seat - an ancient volcano, and sits 251m above sea level giving excellent views of the city. With its diverse range of flora and geology it is…
Head for Holyrood Park. Then walk or drive to Dunsapie Loch. Then a short 10 min hike to the summit
Choose a sunny day but bring layers as it is always windy at the top! Takes 35-50 minutes to climb to the top.
Hike a trail to the peak of an extinct volcano for panoramic views of the whole city.

“My favourite of all the Scottish Galleries. But then I am a modern art fan. There are two galleries here No 1 and No 2 literally opposite each other across a road you could easily spend a full day in each of them. Located in Edinburgh’s West End there is a gallery link bus from the national gallery on Princes Street( £1 charge each way). From the Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore sculpture in the garden setting to the Lichtenstein in the gallery this setting keeps on giving. Inspired curation provides a host of specialist exhibitions throughout the year. Currently a Paula Rego exhibition (spring 2020). You cant see everything on a short trip to Edinburgh but if you love art this is a must. Great cafe which is just as well as a bit of a walk to alternatives. ”
“This is my top recommendation for visitors, particularly on short visits. It's like being on a movie set with its iconic, surprising buildings. Climb the Tower to get 360 degree views over the city, sea and countryside. It's the best place to get your bearings after arrival.”
