Calton Hill
Calton Hill
Calton Hill is in central Edinburgh, just to the east of the New Town. The views of the city are very fine from the top.
The hill has several important monuments and buildings on it and around it: the National Monument ( LinkExternal link ), Nelson's Monument ( LinkExternal link ), the Dugald Stewart Monument ( LinkExternal link ), the New Parliament House (the Royal High School), the Robert Burns Monument, the Political Martyrs' Monument and the City Observatory ( LinkExternal link ). Many of the monuments are the work of William Playfair.
On the eastern end of the hill are excellent Georgian Terraces (Regent Terrace, Calton Terrace, Royal Terrace), which were also built by William Playfair and are all Grade A listed. LinkExternal link
