For some people Calton Hill’s semi-natural wilderness is a public park, for others it’s a focus of Scottish architectural, academic and artistic endeavor.
Whether you see it as a viewing point or a place of remembrance, contemplation or inspiration, there is no doubt that Edinburgh’s Calton Hill is a potent symbol of Scotland’s national identity.
If you have spent a day sight-seeing in the city of Edinburgh and all the hustle and bustle is starting to get to you then take a walk up Calton Hill.
The view, with all the amazing constructions, looks like something taken from Greece and yet it is Scotland.
And the view from the top down should not be missed either. Calton Hill is the best place from which to get an extraordinary panoramic view of the Scottish capital and the surrounding Lothians region.
A visit to Edinburgh would not be complete without a walk up Calton Hill and its Scottish Stories in Stone.
