Great views and a nice way to escape some of the hordes of tourists in Edinburgh (not all of them tho). Clockwise gets you to the top faster (along a sloping path), but you have to come down the “infinite steps,” which were a bit slick. Obviously counter-clockwise means you climb the uneven, stone steps that, seriously, seemed to last forever!
