Calton Hill view

Calton Hill
A view of New Town descending down to Leith, Edinburgh’s port, the Firth of Forth, and the Kingdom of Fife beyond the Firth. (Note: A firth is an estuary. This is the estuary where the Forth River meets the North Sea.)

Again, the National Monument, the Greek-style columns on the right, looks two-dimensional even in real life. We walked right up to the foot of the monument, and it still looked like it was cut out of cardboard. Maybe it’s the light….
