Exciting things are happening atop Calton Hill. The City Observatory, once fallen to rack and ruin, opened its doors once again last year after a major five-year renovation. The occupiers? Collective, who since 1984 have been paving the way for Edinburgh’s emerging artists.
Spread across a collection of historic buildings including the Playfair Monument, Observatory House, City Dome and Transit House, Collective have quite literally taken the contemporary art gallery experience to new heights. There’s also the Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage on hand if the climb up the hill works up an appetite. Trust us, the views are worth it.
