"Yes, you may curse the early morning wake-up call but you’ll be forever grateful that you dragged yourself out of bed to experience one of the most memorable moments that it’s possible to have in Edinburgh: the sight of dawn lingering over the city’s rooftops, with this guided adventure which starts under the cloak of darkness at Holyrood Park. A reasonable level of fitness is required for the steep 251m ascent to the top of Arthur’s Seat, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as 'a hill of magnitude'. But don't panic - the pace is slow and steady with plenty of stops for photos. You’ll arrive at the summit in time for sunrise armed with a hot drink and homemade snacks. The perfect start to the day."
