Virtual tour panorama taken part way up Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh. This is a popular walk with locals and tourists alike for the stunning views from the top. It is quite a steep climb though!

Ascent up Salisbury Crags - FURTHER INFORMATION

Ascent up Salisbury Crags - Edinburgh visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Ascent up Salisbury Crags' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Lothian.

Under a mile from the center of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Castle are the Salisbury Crags, a basalt rock formation formed by an extinct volcano later carved by glaciation. The result is a dramatic cliff face rising within Holyrood Park, overlooking the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Scottish Parliament Buildings.

Salisbury Crags is a popular attraction, due to the stunning panoramic views of Edinburgh from the top. The path shown in this picture rises to the base of the cliffs, and can be seen in the satellite view of the Edinburgh Google map. Other paths ascend from the east, taking you to the very top of Salisbury Crags with outstanding views over Edinburgh, Arthur's Seat and the surrounding countryside from about 165m high.
