Calton Hill Monuments

Gray, Marshall and Associates

Working for the City of Edinburgh Council and Edinburgh World Heritage we recently completed work on the repair and restoration of three nationally important monuments on Calton Hill. The National Monument - stone repairs, including re-positioning one of the giant stone lintols. Nelson Monument - stone repairs and upgrading. A major part of the work was the restoration of the 1853 Time Ball which involved dismantling, cleaning, repair and re-erection. Burns Monument - stone repairs and restoration of historic cast iron windows and other other features.
