The park contains a wealth of history and archaeology spanning thousands of years.
Because of this history the park is a Scheduled Monument and looked after by Historic Scotland. Due to its diverse flora and geology it is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Please respect the fragility of the park and help the Ranger Service when you visit by abiding by the park rules and regulations.
The amazing view of Edinburgh from Arthur’s Seat – the park’s highest point at 251m above sea level – and the Salisbury Crags, world famous since their association with famous geologist James Hutton in the 1700s, which dominate the Edinburgh skyline.
