Sunset at Calton Hill

How many cities do you know of that have hills protruding right in the middle? Atop the hill, is the Athenian Acropolis, an unfinished project from the early 19th century, a ‘should-have-been’ monument to those who died in the Napoleonic wars. The view from the hilltop is spectacular, the perfect quiet setting to watch the morning sun gradually illuminate the beautiful cityscape below.

Tip – if you’re not afraid of heights, you can climb the 143 steps of Nelson Monument to reach the public viewing gallery to enjoy one of the best panoramic views over the city and the Fife coast.
