About Salisbury Crags, Edinburgh

Holyrood Park (also called the Queen's Park or King's Park depending on the reigning monarch's gender) is a royal park in central Edinburgh, Scotland about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. It has an array of hills, lochs, glens, ridges, basalt cliffs, and patches of gorse, providing a remarkably wild piece of highland landscape within its 650-acre (260 ha) area. The park is associated with the royal palace of Holyroodhouse and was formerly a 12th-century royal hunting estate. The park was created in 1541 when James V had the ground "circulit about Arthurs Sett, Salisborie and Duddingston craggis" enclosed by a stone wall. Holyrood Park is now publicly accessible. Arthur's Seat, the highest point in Edinburgh, is at the centre of the park, with the cliffs of Salisbury Crags to the west. There are three lochs; St Margaret's Loch, Dunsapie Loch, and Duddingston Loch. The ruined St Anthony's Chapel stands above St Margaret's Loch. Queen's Drive is the main route through the Park, and is partly closed on Sundays to motor vehicles. St Margaret's Well and St Anthony's Well are both natural springs within the park. Holyrood Park is located to the south-east of the Old Town, at the edge of the city centre. Abbeyhill is to the north, and Duddingston village to the east. The University of Edinburgh's Pollock Halls of Residence are to the south-west, and Dumbiedykes is to the west.

  • Breathtaking 360° views of Edinburgh and the surrounding royal park. There are 2 very different level trails to the summit, in terms of difficulty. The main trail is well kept, wide and flat and suitable for most; including dogs and children. The other path (the west side) is very demanding with switchback paths of boulders, rough stairs made of boulders, and dirt paths steep enough it requires your hands. The main path crosses in front of the ruins of a church. Ensure you prepare for screaming winds, especially at the top that will easily rip hats off, or phones out of hands.

  • De stevige beklimming is de moeite waard. Het park met daarin Arthur's seat is wonderschoon. Het zicht op Edinburgh is prachtig.
