Tips from locals

You can see from the window or you can climb it. 15 minutes walking from the flat to the bottom of the hill. Another 30 mins to the top. Unmissable.

Great for a nice walk and great for views over the city. Near the parliament and Holyrood Palace

Old volcano located near city centre , hike up to the top (around 40 mins) and enjoy the breathtaking views of the city out onto the firth of forth. During colder months advise to layer up it can get very windy and chilly at the top!

The road up Arthur's Seat is right outside the flat, and there are stunning views of the city!
