The Dugald Stewart Monument is a nice monument, in a lovely setting, on Calton Hill, in the heart of Edinburgh. Calton Hill can be reached from Princes Street. At the (northern?) end Princes Street becames Waterloo Street and it, in turn, becomes Regent Road. At...More

I cannot fault any aspect of Edinburgh, and the Dugald Stewart is just one of so many fantastic monuments, buildings and places to visit. Go and see for yourself, stroll around for a weekend and explore Calton Hill (where this monument resides), Holyrood, the castle...More

This monument is a memorial to Scottish philosopher Dugald Steward who was a professor at University of Edinburgh, holding the chair of moral philosophy from 1786 until his death in 1828. Located on Carlton Hill, this neo-Greek circular monument overlooks the city centre.
This was the final monument that my daughter and I viewed today after spending a couple of hours or so up Calton Hill taking in the views and visiting the other attractions.
It is a memorial to the Scottish philosopher Dugald Stewart and was completed...More
The quality of all the buildings on Calton Hill is incredible. Anyone visiting Edinburgh should attempt to see them close up. Although the Dugold Stewart monument may be overshadowed by the Nelson Monument and the observatory, it is a perfectly proportioned gem and worthy of...More
Dugald Stewart, the great philosopher and mathematician, you never heard of him? Neither did I! Still he must have been something special to the people of Edinburgh to stick a monument for him on top of a hill, sharing the hill with monuments for Lord...More
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 but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
