Edinburgh - The National Monument on Calton Hill

Edinburgh - The National Monument on Calton Hill

The National Monument, colloquially known as Edinburgh's Disgrace, in Edinburgh is Scotland's memorial to those who died fighting for the United Kingdom in the Napoleonic Wars. The monument dominates the top of Calton Hill, just to the east of Edinburgh's New Town. It was designed by Charles Robert Cockerell and his collaborator William Henry Playfair and is modelled upon the Parthenon in Athens. Construction started in 1826, and the building is notable for being only partially completed.
