Kiera Baxter, Millets Marketing Manager, said: “Arthur Seat is a wonderful walk, offering 360 degree views of the city of Edinburgh and the Lothians.
“With many sights to see along the way, such as St Anthony’s Chapel, Salisbury Crags and Duddingston Loch, it’s no surprise that research has found the promenade to be the most beautiful in the UK.
“With several routes available, a walk to Arthur’s Seat is suitable for all levels of walker. For the easiest ascent we recommend going up from the east where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch.
“If you’re looking for a challenge, cross the grass to the end of Salisbury Crags, where a steep path leads to Nether Hill.
“Wherever you choose to walk, it is essential that you do so responsibly in order to maintain the beauty of the course.
“We recommend that you avoid car journeys where possible, stick to public paths and make sure you don’t leave any traces of your presence, taking all garbage with you.
“It is also essential to be well prepared for each walk you take.
“Plan your route before you go, bring plenty of water and snacks to keep you in shape throughout the day, and wear appropriate and weather-appropriate shoes and clothing for the route. ”
