Scott Monument, Edinburgh
The Scott Monument, erected in honour of writer Sir Walter Scott, is about 60 metres high and stands watch over both Old and New Towns. If you're feeling energetic (or just looking to provoke a coronary event), 287 really narrow steps will bring you to the top. There's barely room for one person so wall hugging is necessary if you meet someone on the way down (or up).
And the views are quite marvy, so the vertigo inducing climb is worth it.
