This evening, I am presenting an image of Edinburgh’s Old Observatory which was designed by James Craig and dates from 1776. This is situated on Calton Hill and meshes in with the New Town architecture which can be seen in the background.

This was planned as the City Observatory with advice from Robert Adam. It is one of Craig’s very few surviving buildings.

This image was taken from atop the Nelson Monument which offers the fit and energetic some great views when visibility is right.
