  • A great view at 360 °, the entrance to admire this view is £ 5, and a rise by spiral staircases.

  • You get a little certificate and a magnificent all-round view for the troubles of the rise. An information booklet, which you can, see what you can see everything beautiful is there in different languages to borrow.

  • The Nelson Monument is worth the climb. It affords a spectacular view of the city and surrounding countryside. And if you don't know who Admiral Nelson was, then this is the perfect opportunity to bush up on you 19th century history. I would even recommend reading Sharpe's Trafalgar, an excellent historical fiction book by Bernard Cornwell.
  • You can have a nice view from the city and also learned about the time ball installed on the roof.
  • One of the best spots to get a good overview of the city of Edinburgh. Why and how they build this enormous monument is up for debate.
  • Really great views over Edinburgh well worth the climb to the top.
  • Beautiful view of the city. It's the best place to admire Edinburgh, better than Arthur's seat
