The Scott Memorial and Festival Wheel are next to each other and Waverley station. Which is best?
The Scott Memorial is centuries old, built to honour the Scottish writer Walter Scott.
The festival wheel is only in Edinburgh for a few months, in that sense it is historically unique.
Comfort of Experience
Wheel get to sit. Monument have to climb lots of steps and some tight spirals that may not like if claustrobic.
The Scott Memorial has Gothic architectural features. The wheel is your typical wheel.
Up to 10pm when wheel going round it is lit up, after that only Scott Monument lit up. You judge; perhaps wheel more environmentally friendly.
Views from Scott Memorial is better because it is higher up.
