Calton Hill, at the southern end of Princes Street, offers commanding views over Edinburgh. It is the site of a number of masterpieces of Scottish neo-classical architecture that give rise to the city’s reputation as the Athens of the North.

The Fletcher Trust Collection is one of the largest curated private collections of Aotearoa art. The Trust makes works available online as well as via exhibitions initiated by public art institutions and by the Trust itself.
