Arthur was a sensible guy in putting his seat here :-) It's just a wee hike to the top, maybe a bit steep in places for some but well worth the effort. Take a small pair of binoculars and a flask of something hot for it is always windy in Edinburgh to some extent, and a wooly hat too. The reward is a panoramic view of a beautiful city. Even is you do not make it to the top then you can look down at the fine buildings of Holyrood Place and the modern concrete structure that is the seat of devolved Scottish Government.
It is bracing, but you'll complete the descent with a big smile on your face.
