Calton Hill - Review
It’s location in the middle of Endinburgh makes it a very convenient destination. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the hill offers fabulous views of Edinburgh, Arthur’s Seat and the sea reaching over to Fife. Bring your cameras! It’s best to visit in the early morning when the air is crisp and clean. Also catch the numerous iconic monuments scattered over the area, one of which is an unfinished model of the Parthenon. At the Old Carton Burial Ground, the poet and philosopher David Hume was interred. You can climb Lord Nelson’s Tower here for a small fee, giving you even better views.
