360° VR panorama looking out over the city of Edinburgh from Calton Hill. The hill is a famous location, both for its views, and also the variety of monuments located there.
The nearby building in this image is part of the City Observatory. The circular pillared structure to the south-west is the Dugald Stewart Monument. To the south-east is the Nelson Monument, a tower built between 1807 and 1815 in honour of Nelson’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
To the east is the National Monument of Scotland. This pillared structure was built as a memorial to the Scottish soldiers and sailors who died in the Napoleonic Wars. It was intended to be modelled on the Parthenon, but was left unfinished in 1829.
