Featured Book

Book Cover Calton Hill: And the plans for Edinburgh's Third New Town by Kirsten Carter McKee (6 September 2018). Calton Hill stands on the eastern edge of Edinburgh's centre. Development began in the late eighteenth century with the intention of changing the rural periphery into the new urban core of the city.
