Event description
Discover how Calton Hill was transformed from an isolated, windswept hill into one of Edinburgh’s most iconic skylines.

About this Event

Today, with its stunning panoramic views of the city and the surrounding landscape, Calton Hill is one of Edinburgh’s most popular attractions. On this history-walk we will look at Edinburgh’s urban development and Calton Hill’s buildings and monuments in tandem, following Calton Hill’s changing relationships with the city and its people, as well as its place in local and national culture.

The whole tour takes place on the summit of Calton Hill and lasts around 1 hour. Most of the tour is on surfaced paths but there are steps and uneven ground. Calton Hill can feel quite exposed so please check the weather forecast and dress appropriately. Public toilets and refreshments available.

Recommended for ages 16+
