Leith and Leith Walk

Although Leith is now considered part of Edinburgh, as many Leithers will tell you, Leith is a burgh in its own right.

Leith is the old maritime centre of Edinburgh and the Port of Leith steeped in shipping history. Its shipping heyday is behind it now but with its dockside restaurants and bars Leith is now a vibrant place to hang out for weekend meals or drinks down by the watter.
