Holyrood Park is a royal park situated at the bottom of Royal Mile, next to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Scottish Parliament and Our Dynamic Earth. It is impossible to miss it as you can see it from almost everywhere in the city. Its most prominent landmark is Arthur's Seat - the highest peak in Edinburgh.
The park covers 650 acres of land and provides us with a typical highland landscape in an untypical location - the city centre. Holyrood Park is a real treat for anyone who enjoys hillwalking, valley walking, wide city views and the relaxing atmosphere of a nature reserve. There are many paths to take, not all of them lead to the top of the hill.
The park offers a variety of natural features such as lochs and cliffs as well as cultural heritage sites such as ruins of a chapel, Holyrood Abbey and the Palace of Holyroodhouse itself. All this is located within the park, easily accessible from anywhere in the city.
