In the immediate foreground is a portion of the Braid Hills ; farther on the Blackford Hill with the shelter on its highest point, and at the end of the slope to the right the New Royal Observatory. To the left are part of Edinburgh, the mass of the Castle, and the shores of Fife. The Salisbury Crags and "Lion" of Arthur's Seat are above all.
