For the first in the series of Observers’ Walks, Ruth Ewan and Astrid Johnston have created an audio guide, taking in the monuments and geology of Edinburgh’s Calton Hill. Centering around the Political Martyrs’ Monument, this tour reveals the stories behind this glaciated landscape and the rocks we have placed upon it, inviting us to re-engage with the rich diversity of history on Calton Hill.
This walk provides a practical and engaging guide to the monuments of Calton Hill. The walk is divided into 8 tracks, download the map to help you find the start location for each track - the audio guide will also give directions.
*Please note the walk begins at the bottom of Calton Hill so we encourage you to download the audio guide and map before making your way to Collective.
