What a brilliant place for a monument to such a great man, the views are phenomenal! Edinburgh has certainly done its legends justice!

I think the reason for this monument being in Edinburgh, (see an earlier review), is because Rabbie burns spent a lot of his time in Edinburgh especially in the grass market hostelries, this monument is set in a very scenic part of the city.

Came across this monument as we were walking back the alternative route to the Royla Mle. It stans out form it's surroundings and offers great views across the city.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
