Think it was teenaged fascination with Glastonbury Tor that sparked my interest in hilltop architecture. This photo from last time I was there, 2 August 2015.

Managed to get up to the war memorial on Dundee Law in between meetings today. Gloomy light, but you can see the V&A's prow jutting out over the Tay down there.

The Marquess of Anglesey's column wonderfully positioned overlooking the Menai Straits, . Until 2014 you could climb the 115 steps to the viewing platform. What a view across to Snowdonia that must be!

'56-metre-high landmark on Northumberland hilltop set for approval.' Would be 3 times the size of Angel of the North! (Planning decision delayed pending site visit, apparently.)
