Millennium Exhibition

The Calton Hill management plan proposed by Edinburgh World Heritage has been approved by the City of Edinburgh Council. Adequate resources, both in terms of people and funding will be provided to ensure that the plan to improve the area will continue into the future. The proposal for the restoration of the city observatory which was supported by the Astronomical Society of Edinburgh and the One o’ Clock Gun Association during a meeting of the Calton Hill Stakeholders has proved to be an important step in improving the facilities and the public’s interest in the history of the area and the city’s time service. The One o’ Clock Gun Millennium Exhibition set up on the Mills Mount Battery at Edinburgh Castle for three months in collaboration with Historic Scotland is still running, attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world.
