The 251m peak of Arthur’s Seat stands out against the skyline from almost anywhere in Edinburgh. The summit is a fairly easy walk and offers great panoramic views of the city, making it popular with walkers and tourists. It is home to three small lochs and St Anthony’s chapel, an ancient ruin perched on the north slope.
