Holyrood Park and Arthur´s Seat

Next to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, covering a land of 260 hectares, with a rocky hill 225 meters high, you will find the place called Arthur´s seat or Arthur´s chair. It is an extinct volcano from 350 million years ago. Holyrood's name comes from the time of David I, when in 1128 was knocked off his horse by a deer while hunting. According to legend, a cross appeared miraculously on his hands to ward off the animal. In gratitude, the king founded the Abbey of Holy Cross. If I had had my slippers, I would have climbed to the top because it appeared to be miraculous. If I had gone, I would have also given a candle to the Virgin.

It is a place where you can lose yourself in nature

Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano which is more than 350 years old, located in the heart of the city of Edinburgh. This hill of 250 meters is surrounded by cliffs at the summit, but you can still access it on foot after a short 15 minute walk. It is a place where you can lose yourself in nature.
