Port of Leith – Dock Details

Leith and the Water of Leith are areas of Edinburgh that I feel are not explored as much as many of the tourist locations around the city. As I have previously described, Leith is to Edinburgh what Salford Quays is to Manchester, only Leith didn’t get rid of all its industry and the docks are more interesting from a purely historical point of view. Yes, Salford Quays has lovely modern architecture that makes for great night photography, but there is sometime very historic about the docks at Leith, as the above photograph attempts to illustrate.
