Arthur's Seat is the top of Holyrood Park, the large public park at the foot of the Royal Mile. It takes a moderately fit walker about 20 minutes to climb to the top. The park paths are well maintained by Historic Scotland (the government agency in charge of the Royal Park). The windswept spot offers excellent views over the city of Edinburgh.
