The historic monuments on Calton Hill form some of the most important landmarks in this city.

The National Monument is a stunning example of Greek architecture, the Parthenon. In fact, the statue stands as a memorial to Scottish servicemen who sacrificed their lives in the Napoleonic Wars. It was never completed, leaving just twelve columns you see today. To make it even better, you can tie the knot here.
