  • 在卡爾頓山上的小紀念碑,雖然不高但佔盡地利之便,登頂後可以看遍整個愛丁堡市區。入內需門票,喜歡登高或是拍照的旅客可以考慮。

  • From the top of the Hill are the best views of the entire city of Edinburgh. It is worth climbing the slope.

  • 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
