NELSON MONUMENT

Nelson's Monument (built 1807 -1816) was a tribute to the Eighteenth Century Admiral Nelson, celebrated for his victory at The Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

The tower resembles a telescope and the 762kg time ball at the top of is dropped in conjunction with the firing of the One O'clock Gun from Edinburgh Castle and both were originally used as the naval signal by which ship chronometers were set.

Inside there is a visitors information centre. The tower offers a fantastic panoramic view of Edinburgh.
