Description:
The walk starts opposite the Palace of Holyroodhouse, climbing immediately and steeply to follow a path directly below the impressive Salisbury Crags. It then heads 'inland' down a flat valley, before climbing again to visit St. Anthony's Chapel, a ruin perched high on crags above a loch. It then turns back and climbs steeply, right up to the top of Arthur's Seat. The views from the top are fantastic! All of Edinburgh can be seen, as well as much of East Lothian, Midlothian and across the Firth of Forth to Fife. The route continues down the 'tourist route' to Dunsapie Loch, finally heading down beside the public road and around, past the lower loch, back to the start.
