The Sir Walter Scott monument in Edinburgh, Scotland is on Princes street. Princes Street is a main street with lots to see and do.
Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. You are probably familiar with one of his famous quotes. Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!
It cost just 3 pounds to go up inside this Victorian gothic monument, but be sure to get there in time. They close early. We know this because we did not get there in time!
The tower is 200 feet 6 inches (61.11 m) high, and has a series of viewing platforms reached by a series of narrow spiral staircases giving panoramic views of central Edinburgh and its surroundings. The highest platform is reached by a total of 288 steps.
