“This is a giclée print of the silhouette of Calton Hill, one of Edinburgh’s amazing city centre hills. It offers stunning views over the capital and beyond. The image shows the City Observatory, designed by William Henry Playfair in 1818, as Greek temple-styled building, The Dugald Stewart Monument (to the right) is a circular temple of 9 fluted Corinthian columns around an elevated urn and was built as a memorial to the Scottish philosopher.
This striking Giclée map print is made in Scotland by outlining the Calton Hill Old to create a silhouette & then layering it over a section of a beautiful vintage map.”
