    The real highlight is on the tower. The time ball. This was then raised at 1:00 p.m. so that the ships in the bay could set their chronometers. Because there was open fog at the time, the "Time Ball" was connected with a cable to the One o'Clock Gun from the Castle.

    One of the architectural elements of Calton Hill that make it so beautiful. The tower is dedicated to Admiral Nelson and his victory over the French fleet at Trafalgar.
