A short trek to one of the best views of the city of Edinburgh. A favourite for hogmanay celebration venues.
The short climb to the top of Calton Hill provides stunning views of Princes Street and the city. If you fancy something a bit more strenuous then climb Arthur's Seat (an extinct volcano) the highest point in the city!
For those who want a view of the city but don't want to ramble up Arthurs Seat.
Centre of town and gives great views to the city. On a nice day you will see plenty of people sitting up at the top of the hill watching the world go by.

Point of Interest
“Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age, although the nature of the early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century, and the site continued at times to be a royal residence until 1633. From the 15th century the castle's residential role declined, and by the 17th century it was principally used as military barracks with a large garrison. Its importance as a part of Scotland's national heritage was recognised increasingly from the early 19th century onwards, and various restoration programmes have been carried out over the past century and a half. As one of the most important strongholds in the Kingdom of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle was involved in many historical conflicts from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century to the Jacobite rising of 1745. Research undertaken in 2014 identified 26 sieges in its 1100-year-old history, giving it a claim to having been "the most besieged place in Great Britain and one of the most attacked in the world".”
