Was lucky, picked a sunny evening to go up. The views of the city are some of the best you can do and there's interesting monuments and the like at the top once you have taken endless pictures of the view! Recommended.

The views of Edinburgh from Calton Hill is something you can't miss. It is no far and you don't hace to walk much. Totally recommendable.

Great monuments to photograph but the real reason for the walk up here is the incredible views over the city.
Unfortunately although there is a road it is blocked by a gate at the bottom and despite a notice giving a phone number for disabled people to ring they will not allow car access to the car park at the top of the hill.

Very nice park with beautiful monuments, a little museum on a little tower (4 pound fee), but mostly one of the nicest place to get great views of Edinburgh. Last day decision to visit, more than happy to have done it. Very recommended.

We visited on a beautiful sunny day. Worth the walk up to see the amazing views from the top of Edinburgh. The exhibition in Nelsons Tower was good and was free to go up the tower it was £4.00. There is a small cafe at the top. There is also some benches so you can sit and enjoy just being up there.
