Amazing views of the city. It’s worth the hike. We hike up the mountain instead of the stairs and I think that was easier. We went back down the stairs. I had to stop a few times to catch my breath but it was worth it!
Don't climb the radical road path. Pay attention to the signs. We missed the shorter route and our hike was difficult. Bring an umbrella, weather can move in quickly. Well worth the climb for views of the city and seeing the landscape.
Great spot to get some exercise in the middle of a city. We hiked up to the top by the long route and it was a great view, very peaceful. Saw magpies, a kestrel and buzzards. An ice cream truck is waiting for you at the end of your hike.
I definitely loved Pollock Halls! The breakfast is super, there is everything you could wish to eat! The staff is kind and nice and the reception service is available 24/7. I really liked the location, the campus is wonderful and it is in a very strategic position: just at the feet of Arthur’s seat, it is only 20 min walking from Edinburgh old town. So I’m very satisfied of my stay at Pollock Halls!! I surely recommend this accommodation!
