We've got a few days off so are spending time in greenspaces around Edinburgh. Today we visited Calton Hill - along with Arthur's Seat and Castle Rock, one of Edinburgh's hills formed from ancient (now extinct) volcanoes. It has a really interesting history (that you can read about here) and is most famous for its follies, unfinished monuments and other interesting buildings, which are always photogenic.

The hill also offers wonderful views across Edinburgh and to Arthur's Seat
