Let's go up Arthur’s Seat on a Sunday morning

  • Mar 9, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

A vigorous walk up and around Edinburgh’s finest extinct volcano.

A reasonable level of fitness is required and you should be prepared for the more challenging routes. You'll need proper walking shoes as it can be muddy and slippery, as well as a weatherproof jacket.

Walk Details

Distance: estimated 5 km (3 miles)

Total Ascent: estimated 400 meters

Approximate duration, including breaks: 2 hours

Meet me at the the black information kiosk in the Holyrood carpark (close to the Palace and opposite the crags). Leaving at 10.40AM, returning to the kiosk. The exact route will be chosen on the day and we'll walk for up to two hours.  Weather permitting, we'll take in a full 360 degree panorama of Lothian and beyond, including unparalleled views of the city from many vantage points en-route.

Dogs are welcome on this walk and in the pub, but must be kept under control at all times and on a short lead as required.

Following the walk, we'll be taking a short stroll to Hemma bar for refreshments.

Getting there

It's a short walk from bus stops at the east end of Princess Street or on North Bridge, which are served by most Lothian Buses.  Service 35 stops at the foot of the Royal Mile near the Parliament and Palace.


Walkers are responsible for their own safety, and no member or organizer from the group can be held responsible in case of any mishap. By signing up for this walk you are understood to have agreed to these terms.
