Rising just beyond the centre of Edinburgh, the once rural Calton Hill was developed in the late 18th century to extend the city towards the port of Leith. The site’s contrasting architectural styles are often perceived as a commentary on the friction between Scottish and British nationalism, reflecting the nuances that define Scotland’s sense of identity within Britain. In this well-illustrated study, the author investigates Calton Hill’s creation, its history, and its symbolism for Scotland today.
