Holyrood Park is a royal park in central Edinburgh, Scotland about 1 mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. It is open to the public. It has an array of hills, lochs, glens, ridges, basalt cliffs, and patches of gorse, providing a remarkably wild piece of highland landscape within its 650-acre area…

Beautiful views of the whole city. This former volcano offers terrain to delight hikers of all levels. There are many cosy spaces throughout the park to just lay in the sun or enjoy the calm. A nice way to escape the city. If you want to explore different neighborhoods of the city, you can walk…

Point of Interest
“A great day out for all the family, an amazing insight into Scotland's past coupled with fantastic views over Edinburgh and the surrounding area. In the castle you will find "Mons Meg" this siege cannon can shoot a 330 pound stone almost 2 miles - now days it just gets fired to tell us its 1 o'clock everyday. You will also find Scotland's Crown Jewels and be amazed by the architecture of the castle that has been built on top of a dormant volcano. You will not be disappointed with the castle and all it has to offer.”

Park
“A little closer to the centre than Arthurs Seat, Carlton Hill offers similar fantastic panorama views over Edinburgh and the surrounding area. A bit easier to get to the top too and walking distance from the flat. Take a picnic if its a nice day and enjoy the views. ”
