About Nelson Monument

The Nelson Monument sits at the top of Calton Hill in Edinburgh, Scotland. It represents Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson's triumph over Spanish and French troops in 1805. The building symbolizes victory and stands as a museum with a beautiful view from the top. You can watch the time ball drop every day at 1:00, gander at the large model of Nelson's ship, and look at the love letter the Admiral wrote right before his death. You can read about the famous battle which occurred at the monument sight and which claimed Nelson's life.
