It is the highest mountain in Edinburgh. You can see it anywhere in the city. You can overlook the whole city of Edinburgh from the throne of Arthur. Although the mountain is not very high, but the road is still very rugged, there are many stones on the top of the mountain, which can be photographed in various shapes, and the air on the top of the mountain is fresh and very comfortable. The only disadvantage is that the mountain wind is relatively strong, a little cold to pay attention to warmth.
The difficulty is that it's the summit of Edinburgh, and it's tiring to walk up. Here you can have a view of the whole city. Along the way, wild bees fly and the scenery is magnificent. In addition to hiking, local people also have to run, because the other side of the mountain is rocky, so rock climbing is also a good way to play.
Originally thought it was only a small slope of more than 200 meters, but it was really difficult to climb. When I met my high school classmate studying in Edinburgh, I asked him to give us a guided tour for half a day. He recommended us the best scenic route, which is to start from the north, go up the cliff to the west, and then go up to the top of the cliff, and then from the south to the top of the throne of Arthur. But the beautiful local road is really not easy to walk, coupled with the heavy rain the previous day, when we went, although the weather was good, but the mud road is still dry, the stone is still slippery. So before you go to play, you must take into account the various conditions of yourself and your friends and relatives, and choose the right route. It also has a very gentle and well-repaired "old people's walking passage", but most of the roads are dirt roads and stones laid at will (the stone steps are super high and uneven). The hardship of climbing the mountain road still does not affect the surprise brought to us after climbing the top. The vision is very broad. It is still worth visiting. It's expected to take an hour and a half to climb the mountain. If it's not easy to walk on rainy days, it may take longer.
It takes about half an hour to reach the top of Arthur's seat, but it's worth it. The starting point is in the parking lot, just a few steps away from the Hoderrod Palace at the end of Royal Avenue. The view from the top is very beautiful. The rocks have worn smoothly. It's better to wear outdoor shoes.
