As the its name suggests this waterside shopping mall is at the end of the line and at the watter's edge.

As well as shopping, there's a fair selection of eateries and watering holes, the Vue Cinema complex, and the balcony offers a good view over the transforming land-and-sea-scape at Leith Docks and the Royal Yacht Britannia, which is permanently berthed here.

Club nights in the mall have proved more successful than you might expect from a modern shopping mall, perhaps on account of the sheer size of the venue with its high ceilings and the views of Leith waterfront.

Buses run regularly to Ocean Terminal and you can bike comfortably from the New Town via the off-road Canonmills to Leith cycleway.
