Arthur's Seat

This is a view of Arthur's Seat from the east, with a few figures at the summit and approaching it from the direction of Dunsappie Loch.

Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano, 823 ft above sea level, in Queen's Park near the centre of Edinburgh, with views around Edinburgh, to the Castle, the Old Town, the New Town and across the Firth of Forth to Fife.

This photograph was taken from the road leading up the hill from St Margaret's Loch to the car park at Dunsappie Loch, a popular starting point for a walk up Arthur's Seat. 

Here is a view of Arthur's Seat from the north.
