Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Park: A Visitor’s Guide

By (author) Historic Scotland & Scottish Natural Heritage

In the city of Edinburgh lies Holyrood Park containing the craggy mountain known as Arthur’s Seat. Currently it is a public place, a quiet wilderness belying its close proximity to bustling streets, and a far cry from the industry and agriculture of its past. From the hill-top defences set up about 2000 years ago to the foundation platforms of 19th-century shepherd’s cottages, this book tells the 10,000-year story of Holyrood Park.
