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.
Beltane Fire Festival is a walking festival at sundown on Calton Hill. It is a ticketed event, and date floats each year to reflect start of spring. Starts around 8pm and lasts 5 hours if you stay for the full thing. We did take kids (in pram) the first time - but if you are prudish stay away! lots…
Amazing spot in the heart of the city! Great for photos and a breath of fresh air.

Рекомендации местных жителей
“At 820 feet, Arthur's Seat is the highest point in the 640-acre Holyrood Park. The spectacular views from the top encompass the whole city all the way to the mouth of the Forth. The easiest way up is from Dunsapie Loch, where there's a good-sized car park. Alternatively, you can walk from the Old Town, heading up past the Dynamic Earth science center onto a path that leads from Queen's Drive. Also easy to climb are the dramatic Salisbury Crags, a series of 151-foot cliffs adjacent to Arthur's Seat. Other features in this huge park are the ancient cultivation terraces, some of the earliest and best-preserved examples of ancient farming practices in Scotland, and the picturesque ruins of the medieval, St. Anthony's Chapel.”
