  • National Monument!? Questionable seppir siggestivo, unfinished work because some of the money ... If they are drunk to celebrate the start of work ... spectacular these Scots

  • A bit weird this unfinished greek or roman inspired monument. The other monuments nearby are much nicer to enjoy
  • Nice views from the pillars and the pillars themselves look magnificent! Construction going on in the area so could not access all areas. Pillars had scribblings from visitors and/or rowdy elements which was a sad thing...
  • Very nice and quiet place. Perfect for family with children. From this place you can see Edinburgh city centre and sea. If is sunny day there is really perfect view. This is one of the place what you must visit if you are in Edinburgh.
  • Very nice view to the city. Admire hills, city center, sea ... Free of charge. Takes at least 30-40 mins
  • Stunning views of the entire city from the hill. The monument is nice as well.
