Located on Calton Hill in Edinburgh, National Monument of Scotland is Scotland’s national memorial to Scottish soldiers and sailors. Often referred as Edinburgh’s key landmark, this monument stood incomplete for more than 200 years due to lack of funds. If you plan to come here in April, you can attend the annual Beltane Festival, a pagan festival that welcomes the beginning of summer. The place where it is situated is quiet and peaceful. It also offers spectacular views of the city from the top.
