'Of all places for a view, this Calton Hill is perhaps the best' - Robert Louis Stevenson Situated at the east end of Princes Street, Calton Hill offers sweeping panoramic views of Scotland’s capital. To the north you can view the Kingdom of Fife, west gives you fantastic views over Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle while to the south the impressive bulk of Arthur's Seat looms large. The hill is also home to the Scottish National Monument which appears similar to the Parthenon in Athens. Unlike the Parthenon however, the Monument was never completed and at the time was called Scotland's 'disgrace'. The walk to the summit does contain stairs and uphill paths but should offer no problem to those with average fitness. The reward far outweighs any effort! (Photo Credit: Lāsma Artmane, unsplash.com)
