Tuck's description on the back of this card reads:
from Calton Hill. A beautiful view of a beautiful city. West
from the hill shows the picturesque and irregular mass of the castle,
immediately behind the classic monument to Dugald Stuart which occupies
the foreground of the picture.
On the left is seen part of the Old Town with
the Imperial Crown of St Giles, the spire of the Tolbooth Church and the
dome of the Bank of Scotland."
