Photos of Calton Hill, Edinburgh
About Calton Hill
Calton Hill is without a doubt the best vantage point in Edinburgh. It offers amazing views towards Edinburgh Castle, the Balmoral Hotel, the Scott Monument and other City Centre attractions and buildings, including the Palace of Holyroodhouse down at the foot of the Royal Mile. On a clear day you can see all the way to Fife, across the Firth of Forth. Calton Hill is also ideal for photographing the Edinburgh Fireworks Concert or the New Year Fireworks display. It also offers the highest vantage point in the City Centre, the top platform of the Nelson Monument.
