Calton Hill is one of Edinburgh's main hills, set right in the city centre. It is unmistakable with its Athenian acropolis poking above the skyline.
The top of Calton hill is a usually quiet place to go on any day, with its grassy slopes and panoramic views of the city, including down the length of Princes street (the main shopping thoroughfare) and Edinburgh Castle. There is a good view North of the cliffs of Salisbury Crags, Arthur's Seat, and the undulating slopes of Holyrood Park.
