Have you ever been to the Camera Obscura? As well as all sorts of weird illusions and a super fun mirror maze (we spent much longer than is reasonable playing hide and seek in it!) there is the camera obscura itself (a giant Victorian periscope which projects live images of what’s going on in the city outside) and the brilliant rooftop terrace too. The roof of a tall building at the top of the Royal Mile is a great vantage point to see the city and beyond. We were lucky enough to have the sun break through the clouds while we were up there, and the views across my beloved Edinburgh were just beautiful. Remind me never to live anywhere in the vicinity with a window facing the terrace though; those are very powerful telescopes!
