Edinburgh’s Holyrood park comprises of Hollyrood Palace (the official Scottish residence of the Queen of England) and several climbable hills with Arthur’s Peak being one of them. The hill is 822ft high with unbelievable views of Edinburgh once you reach the top.

Check out the view from the top.
What an amazing city with its medieval architecture, hauntingly creepy underground closes and unparalleled hiking opportunities right outside the city.
