Situated on the banks of The Firth of Forth and at the Mouth of the Water Leith, Leith is a quaint port city, it’s original harbor dating to the 14th century. It is now part of Edinburgh. It offers many eateries & bars.

Visiting 'The Shore' at Leith is a must; with lovely walks along the river, historic buildings and excellent places to eat. Especially good to visit during the Edinburgh Fringe when all the restaurants in Edinburgh town are packed!

The perfect way to get here and enjoy the city is the Leith Walkway. Once there, you can Google a bit about this old town and check the Port history.
