The Arthur’s Seat, another fascinating attraction, dates back 2,000 years and is one of the four hill forts located within Holyrood Park. The Holyrood Park hosts a wealth of history and archaeological artefacts that span thousands of years, with rich cultural heritage, wildlife, and volcanic geology. It is a great place to tour when you are in Mountcastle.
