Arthur's Seat Walk

Wednesday, 24 May 18:00

Join us for the walk to Arthur's Seat. Arthur's Seat is an ancient volcano which is the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". 

The walk to the top is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. The return to Old Town Edinburgh is approximately 30 minutes. This event is free and open to all attendees.

We plan to take the “Summit Path” marked as dashed line on the map below.

Please note: Sturdy footwear with good grips for walking in the park is recommended. While we are hoping for a rain-free day, you may also want to bring a rain-jacket along; due to the potential for high winds in Scotland, an umbrella is not advised. 

Disclaimer: Participation in the walk is entirely at the participant's own risk. The organizers of the event do not assume any responsibility or liability for any injury, loss, damage, or accident that may occur during the course of the event.
