I hadn't been down to Leith for around 20 years, and was very pleasantly surprised at how the area has become fascinating in a good sort of way. The walk down Leith Walk is an architectural kaleidoscope with many grand styles in a complete hotch...More

An historic part of Scotland's history, dockyards, early government, ancient history all at your fingertips. Great cafe's, restaurants and local eateries. Plenty of public transport to and from all parts of Edinburgh.

Basically this area is none other than the port of Edinburgh, where you will also find the Ocean Terminal shopping center, suitable for a rainy day, and from where you can start visiting the Royal Yacth Britannia! Not to be missed!

Few Xmas decorations around and it was drizzling weather post the Xmas snow. There are limited places to park. Some of the boats are looking decrepit unfortunately. There are a few restaurants. An interesting navy memorial. Buses go onto Ocean Terminal shops from Edinburgh.

Stayed in Leith for a week, really enjoyed it. Good restaurants, cinema, excellent bus service into the town. Only wish that we had got a weekly bus ticket rather than paying for each single bus journey and they only take cash. Would stay there again.
