Calton Hill Observatory

Refurbished Calton Hill Observatory

The photograph which was taken on Sunday 9th September shows that work on the observatory compound is now in its final stages. The grass has been laid and it’s possible to book a table in the Lookout restaurant. Astronomers and historians interested in the development of science and technology during the nineteenth century will be flocking to the Calton Hill to take a look at the transit house, telescopes and instruments when the observatory opens later this month.
