A Category A listed building sited at the summit of Edinburgh's Calton Hill. Construction started 1807; completed by Thomas Bonnar, 1814-1816. Castellated building; pentagonal single storey structure surrounding 5-stage circular tower with narrower 6th stage. Basically it's in the shape of a telescope. Open to visitors but I was a bit early at 7.30am.

Heavy rain, not worth paying for the climb. Was getting fed up of being sent up here in orienteering events, they let us off this year. Does the time ball still work? Near the real trig - oh I miss the pre spraff days of T:UK, on Calton Hill.

Had seen the monument before in 1991, but paid the 3.00 to ascend the 170 steps for the view of the city, which the kids loved.

I looked around the base of the monument for the cut bench mark listed on the OS database without success, but now I find I can log the IS, it wasn't entirely wasted effort.
