Expert review of The Scott Monument
The biggest monument to a writer anywhere in the world, and the writer is the Scots genuis Sir Walter Scott. It sits in Princes Street Gardens in the centre of Princes Street. There are a mighty 287 steps to the top, worth it though - as the song goes - on a clear day you can see forever. If the weather is not good, give it a miss. There are four viewing galleries on the way up to the top to let you get your breath back.
£3 for both adults and children. No concessions. A bargain really.
