Arthurs Seat, Edinburgh and the Lothians
The derivation of the name is uncertain. Many people point to the seemingly obvious stories that connect it with the legend of King Arthur , arguably one of the Britainís most romantic legends. Others suggest that the name is corrupted from Archerís point and that the name refers to its strategic importance in days gone by.
In addition to visiting Arthurs Seat visitors to the area can enjoy the legendary hospitality of Scotlandís capital city.† There are hotels and guest houses to suit every pocket and taste and a beautiful and historic city to explore.† You can trawl the shops of the magnificent Princes Street, where you might well catch the distant strains of a Bagpiper drifting down from Edinburgh Castle to the city below. Be sure to climb the slope yourself and sample the views from the historic castle. When the sun sets you can enjoy a variety of pubs and restaurants in this vibrant city.
