Friday 20 April 2012: Craiglockhart Trig Stone (111/366)
This is the trig point at the top of Craiglockhart Hill, where I frequently go to get views of Edinburgh. It's handy for the house, and gives useful elevation in the city.
The stone itself is a rather unassuming affair. One hopes that stones at greater altitudes are more commensurate with the effort taken to get there!
Craiglockhart Hill is pitted with the depressions left by WWII anti-aircraft emplacements. German bombers would have overflown this area on their way to bomb the Clyde shipyards in Glasgow. This shot, looking West and round to the North, demonstrates the built up areas upon which downed bombers would have fallen.
