Event description
A walking tour dedicated to one of Edinburgh's most iconic landmarks, Calton Hill - a small hill with a big history!

About this Event

Looking at more than just Calton Hill's famous monuments this tour explores this popular visitor attraction and much-loved local greenspace from top-to-bottom and east-to-west!

Along the way we'll uncover aspects of its long history with an emphasis on some of the many different people who have called it home, how its spaces have been used over the years, as well as looking at some of its key buildings, from Neo-classical townhouses to the long-gone Calton Jail.

Due to the covid19 restrictions this tour is restricted to a maximum of 6 people and social distancing is required throughout the duration of the tour.
