ARTHUR'S SEAT

Dominating over Holyrood Park, Arthur's Seat is a dormant volcano rising 822 feet above sea-level.

It is the highest of Edinburgh's seven hills and offers fantastic panoramic views of the city and the Firth of Forth to the north.

The name 'Arthur's Seat' has been documented since the fifteenth century.

It was undoubtably a strategic look-out post used for military purposes and its association with King Arthur may be a matter of its use as such in the 6th century.

The 'seat' itself is said to be the indent between the highest point of the peak and a secondary point a little way to the south.
