A rather attractive monument located near one of the large public gardens in Edinburgh near Waverly station. It's a nice fixture on the horizon and I believe you can climb it too. Unfortunately I was unable to investigate that last part fully.Recommended for:

The Scott Monument looks like the top of a church that might be buried under Princes Park. For £4, you can climb the almost 300 steps to look out from several of the levels. The staircase at the top is very narrow!
Don't miss the small room at the first level. The stained glass windows are amazing.

A piece of art you can interact with. Walk to the top and get some amazing photographs of Princes Street and the Castle. As you near the top of the monument the steps get very narrow and the treads can be rather worn in places so be careful as you climb. Note that there is a charge for climbing the monument.

This impressive monument stands in Princes St. Gardens. Climb the narrow spiral staircase tol viewing decks with great panoramic views of the city. There's 300 steps so you've got to be fit! There's a small fee which is used towards the upkeep of the monument.
