Edinburgh Video Guide: Calton Hill

Waiting for Video...

CALTON Hill is one of Edinburgh’s most picturesque locations - and that’s saying something. Edinburgh Video Guide’s Rury Mason demonstrates why

Situated just to the east of Princes Street and up a steep set of steps opposite St Andrew’s House, Calton Hill is one of Edinburgh’s most iconic locales. Among several notable monuments, visitors will find the National Monument (a half-completed replica of the Parthenon in Greece), and the Dugald Stewart Monument - perhaps one of Edinburgh’s most photographed objects.

Calton Hill is also home to the annual Beltane Fire Festival in late April, and the Dussehra Hindu Festival in October.
