A tour dedicated to one of Edinburgh's most famous landmarks; Calton Hill - a small hill with a big history!
This two-hour tour reveals Calton Hill as a place of contrasts - from education and incarceration to celebration and persecution to grand town-houses and dingy backstreet tenements.
Stroll around the wider Calton Hill area and discover how, over the last 500 years, this once isolated and insignificant hill became the famous central landmark it is today. Along the way we'll consider Calton Hill's key buildings, how its spaces have been used over the years and the many different people who have called this hill home.

Hi I'm Hetty! An Edinburgh resident for over 25 years I am fascinated by people, buildings and landscapes. With a first class degree in Social and Architectural History I enjoy nothing more than to show people around this beautiful city I call home and share its rich cultural heritage. I love this city, I want you to love it too!
