Defiantly not recommended for the unfit but as tiring as it is when you reach the top the views are definitely worth it!

**SPOILER ALERT **
100's of steps and narrow passageways, If thisn is your think the scott monument is something worth climbing, if not it looks just as impressive on the ground! It costs just a small fee of around £3 to climb the steps to the top! Round and round you go! Fantastic views and a great location just a minute walk from shopping central.

We went up the Scott's Monument as it was just £3 to climb to the top of the Monument and would be worth it to see the views of Edinburgh and boy was that true as the views from the top where really good, although gave me a tadge of vertigo, but the views where worth it :D I didn't climb right to the top, but the middle section. The stairs where really windy and could make you dizzy if you walked up too fast.

Such a beatiful gothic monument to see. Go at the sunset. Its a beatiful scene with the blue sky in the background. Too bad its winter and it was raining every now and then
