“Walk up our ancient volcano situated in Holyrood Park to get a great view of the city. It's 241 metres high and steep in places, so you need good shoes! Combine with a visit to Holyrood Palace or Dynamic Earth.”

“Ancient and modern history of Scotland spanning nature to politics. Vast collection - start at the top and work your way down if you prefer recent history (as I do) as you will need a lot of time to enjoy it all. 30 minutes walk from here.”

“Calton hill is part of the World Heritage site and is beyond the east end of Princes Street. It is the perfect place for photography of views over the whole city and has often been used by painters to capture the city. The Scottish Parliament (an amazing modern building) and Holyrood Palace lie at the foot of the hill. On the hill are the National Monument, the Nelson Monument, the Robert Burns Monument and the City Observatory. ”
