The views of the city are just BEAUTIFUL! I was lucky and went on a clear and sunny day. I plan on heading back pretty soon so I can see the sunset.

Quiete suprised to see how there is to see up Calton Hill, so near to the City but away from the noise and everyday rush with plenty of grass to laze on after visting the Parthenon, Observatory and tower.
