Blackford Hill

Today's offering is courtesy of Mr DiDo, who works in the south of Edinburgh. This is Blackford Hill, some 3 km south of the city centre and 164m high. The green-domed building is the Royal Observatory, which houses the Institute for Astronomy of the University of Edinburgh. Like Arthur's Seat and the Crags, Blakford Hill gives stunning views of the city and the surrounding country - and there are no less than three golf courses attached to it!
