If you want to escape the rush and buzz of Scotland's capital, Holyrood Park is an ideal place for a bit of hiking. The park is valued for its wildlife by locals and tourist alike. Its highest point, Arthur’s Seat, provides an enthralling scenery of the city. Located only a short walk from Edinburgh's center, it is definitely worth the trip. Other sights to visit include St Anthony’s Chapel, Duddingston Loch, and Salisbury Crags.
Interesting note: this park is also sometimes called either Queen's Park or King's Park. The name is changed according to current monarch's gender.
