  • has a small hiking steep, but worth it! In addition to having several monuments upstairs, still has a 360-degree view from the top.

  • Funny piece of history behind this unfinished copy of the Pantheon, but even if that's not your thing, this is definitely one of the best views of Edinburgh. It's just a short stroll from the city centre and other attractions, and for the largest wheelchair accessible.
  • Quite cool but I thought it would be bigger! Nice view from the top though!
  • Very beautiful monument, amazing photo spot to get views of the city and monument in one stunning pic
  • Fanastic view over Edinburgh with lots of information about the immediate and surrounding areas you can see from there
  • Looks really simple in the pictures yet it's a majestic place. Definitely must visit!

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
