The funniest negative TripAdvisor reviews of Arthur’s Seat Edinburgh

Arthur’s Seat is the main part of a cluster of hills in the city center of Edinburgh. The popular walking route was once an active volcano, and rises to a height of 822 feet – providing climbers with exhilarating views across the Edinburgh skyline. There are over 21,000 reviews of Arthur’s Seat, and it’s rated as TripAdvisor’s Best Things To Do in Edinburgh

The Scots have made sure not to mess with the area too much and, as a result, visitors can enjoy gentle strolls around Arthur’s Seat’s circumference, the ruins of a chapel from the 1400’s, and/or uninterrupted natural hikes without ever leaving the comforts of the city center.

The people of Scotland are proud of the country’s natural surroundings. The raw, untouched landscape that dominates so much of Scotland is one of the main draws for many of its tourists.  

However, this is clearly not the case for ALL of who come here. Whilst this convenient hill provides panoramic city views and exercise routes for both locals & guests alike, some tourist have been less than impressed to discover that the big hill is … well … a big hill.
