Calton Hill

Calton Hill is a hill in central Edinburgh. It's located just east of the New Town. We were staying 500mtrs down the road so I ventured up one morning with the camera.

 

Unfortunately there is no new perspective here. This place must be one of the most photographed locations in Europe. I had to battle 100's japanese tourists to get this shot (people are waiting on either side of the frame for me to take the shot). In the foreground is the Dugald Stewart Monument.

 

It's hard to describe how Edinburgh makes you feel. Robert Louis Stevenson probably said it best: “Edinburgh establishes an interest in people's hearts. Go where they will, they find no city of the same distinction.” It's been a year since I was there and I still think about this great city.
