Scotland is mostly famous for the Loch Ness Monster, Bagpipes, Kilts and Whiskey. We went in 2017, and were stunned by it's nature and beautiful highlands and even mountains. We went hiking, saw cliffs and waterfalls, castles and ruins and of course tried the local whiskey.
Calton Hill in Edinburgh is mostly known for its great view over Edinburgh. You will not find a guidebook without a photo similar to the one above. Besides the Dugald Stewart monument (a memorial to the Scottish philosopher by the same name), you will see many other landmarks on the hill and below. One of them is the National Monument which was never completed, as only half the money to build it was ever collected.
