Dwarfing the tram from Calton Hill are the City Observatory, the Dugald Steward Monument and the National Monument of Scotland. Out of sight however, is the Nelson Monument, as this is hidden from view behind the Balmoral's clock tower. 27/06/19 https://www.stevesworldoftrams.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=205955626 205955626
