“Carlton Hill overlooks Edinburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

My wife went to Burns Memorial, but I hiked the short distance to the top for a spectacular view. The building on top were very interesting and views of the bay and royal mile

“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Gorgeous city views - 360 degree views. About 5-10 minutes walk up the hill. A little steep but not too bad.

“Not Edinburgh's Disgrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Well worth a visit - if only to take the clichéd quintessential shot of Edinburgh Old Town with Castle. An absolute must.
