If I had a drone and was brazen enough to use it in the streets of Edinburgh then I might have been able to capture an image like this. What I would have missed out on was the shear pleasure of this amazing castle vista, not on a device screen but with my very own eyes.
Scotts Monument however provided the perfect place to take in this unobstructed view of Edinburgh Castle with nothing more than a little hard work and 267 vertical steps. At 62 meters above the pavement I could not have asked for a more perfect platform.
