Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park Map

map coverThe most useful map of Arthur's Seat and the Salisbury Crags is Edinburgh Seven Hills: Hill walking within the city, which is published by Harvey Maps. This detailed map, which was compiled in 1998, includes a topographical plan of Holyrood Park with roads and walking routes. By looking at the topographical lines on the map, you can gauge the steepness of each path.

I picked up my copy of the Edinburgh Seven Hills map at Blackwell's--formerly Thin's Bookshop--at 53-62 South Bridge (about two blocks south of the Royal Mile). The price was 3.95.

If you don't have 3.95 to spare, use one of the free tourist maps or the AA's 1.50 Z-Map for Edinburgh. These and other maps of the city center show the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the foot of the Royal Mile, where you'll start your walk up the Salisbury Crags and on to Arthur's Seat.
