Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament from the Calton Hill
"Edinburgh, even were its population as great as that of London, could never be merely a city. Here there must always be present the idea of the comparative littleness of all human works. Here the proudest of palaces must be content to catch the shadows of mountains; and the grandest of fortresses to appear like the dwellings of pygmies, perched on the very bulwarks of creation." -- John Gibson Lockhart




The Grecian-style temple is the Robert Burns Monument on Regent Road.
