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.

National Monument Of Scotland Reviews & Ratings

  • Very average quality of food for far too much money! Customer service was exceptional however. Not too annoyed we decided to try it out.

  • you know you've run out of options when you have to resort to eating here. overpriced. £4 for a below average hot dog. £8 for a sandwich that a child could put together. the rating system for food in Edinburgh is abit screwed up. I think everyone is way too polite to leave a bad review but this lets bad businesses thrive and genuinely good cafes/restaurants lose out.

  • Home style eatery food but good quality. A little pricey but tasty Scottish inspired food.

  • Not so good Food not great and Toilets right next to the kitchen!?? Kill the greedy Gulls outside

  • Run with the hunt... be a stag. Free and wild... husky
