(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the view from Arthur's Seat, a popular vantage point known locally as "Queen of the Points." The spot commemorates a British officer who, after losing his family in a tragic ferry accident, used to sit there and gaze upon the river for hours. Climb up from the parking lot to the point, situated at an elevation of 1,470 m (4,822 ft), and observe the picturesque scenery of mountain ranges and deep river valleys.
