  • The Scots know how to party and the National Monument is a great example. They ran out of money to pay for it because of the parties they had as it was being built. It's a simple structure but still beautiful.
  • A relaxed lawn in the Calton Hill. The monument used a similar architecture of Greece Parthenon, although it was left unfinished.
  • Worth the visit and great views. A hysterical story about the city partying after each plinth went up and then running out of money to complete it.
  • The monument it self is nothing extraordinary but the views of the lovely Edinburgh city are worth the visit. It is near the center of the city. If you want to take nice photos from here, than i recommend that you get up early and be here before 9am, otherwise this place will fill up of guided tours.
  • The view from the hill is pretty awesome.
