Exhilarating walk,especially with the wind. Different degrees of difficulty,with walks for all. Wear good boots or shoes ,as is very slippy if going to the top.
The Walk up Arthur's Seat is lovely. The Panoramic views from the Top are great to take in. There are plenty of paths to take up to the top if desired.

With the best views on a clear day, and even if it's not a clear day - it's an invigorating walk that blows the cobwebs away. It is worth the effort and you can just spend time sitting and absorbing it all. It's almost like you're in the country looking down on the wonderful city of Edinburgh.
