Calton Hill

This view from the top of Calton Hill looks to the west towards Princes Street with the Scott Monument  in the centre of the picture, with the higher ground of  Edinburgh Castle Rock immediately to the left.

The  is prominent in the foreground centre-right, but Princes Street leading past the Scott Monument towards the Dugald Stewart Monument can barely be seen.  For a much clearer view of Princes Street, see DO Hill's sketch in pencil from Calton Hill.
