Within Holyrood Park is a wealth of history and archaeology spanning thousands of years. Arthur’s Seat is one of four hill forts dating from around 2000 years ago. The park is a scheduled ancient monument and a site of special scientific interest due to its archaeology, geology and wildlife. The Park offers walks, solace, wildlife, volcanic geology and unparalleled views of the city from its many vantage points.
The City of Edinburgh Council and Historic Scotland are delighted to work in partnership to bring a unique piece of nature into the city. We are thrilled to welcome the Giants in the Forest to Holyrood Park and encourage visitors to spend some time with the Giants as well as explore the Holyrood and Canongate area. The installation provides a great opportunity for us to support VisitScotland's Year of Natural Scotland.
