The history behind the monuments displayed at Calton Hill is very appealing to historians and those who just want to see something unique. If visiting the area I highly recommend you check this location out.

Stunning views - worth the walk - and you can avoid the stairs and walk up the hill at the back.
We wander up here at least once a year - if in Edinburgh would not miss.

The classic 360 degree view of Edinburgh is from up on Calton Hill. A lot more to see in terms of buildings than I thought thought I would skip the £5 charge for the observatory as that’s a complete joke. Not sure how accessible it is as we walked up a flight of steps and a steep hill to get up but the view is worth it.

Have been to Edinburgh millions of times but have never visited Calton Hill. Stupid mistake!!
Beautiful place with so much to see. Can't wait to see it through all the seasons. Definitely a place to visit. Loved it.

Easy to get to and not far from city centre (closer than Arthur's Seat).

There is a steep walk up a slope which takes some effort but the view is great and a nice walk. The evening came and made the view even better, seeing it all lit up.

Free and fun!
