Looking southwards with Salisbury Crags rising in the distance. In the days when small children were allowed to roam freely, Arthur's Seat beckoned the young of this most densely populated part of Edinburgh to their own Shangri-la of a play area in the King's Park.

This was originally the old coach road between Edinburgh and Leith. LinkExternal link

"In 1763—There were two stage-coaches, with three horses, a coachman, and postillion to each coach, which went to the port of Leith (a mile and a half distant) every hour from eight in the morning, till eight at night, and consumed a full hour upon the road.
In 1783—There were five or six stagecoaches to Leith every half-hour, which ran it in fifteen minutes."

(from a letter by the publisher William Creech in The Statistical Account of Scotland, 1791-99)
