Leith Edinburgh

A hub of gastro pubs, creativity and harbour life.

 

Sitting proudly on the shores of the Firth of Forth is Leith, an area of Edinburgh only a mile from the central shopping area of Princes Street, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle.

This area originally served as the Port of Edinburgh, the harbour dates back to the 14th Century and has been visited by many travelling dignitaries from Mary Queen of Scots to King George IV.

These days the trendy area of Leith is a melting pot of cool, hip hotels, chic wine bars, and is synonymous with fabulous Scottish cuisine.

Independent, contemporary art galleries sit side by side with charming delicatessens and artisan shops which you won’t find on the high street.

Take a stroll along the Water of Leith – take in the scenery and stop for a glass of wine or dinner. As you enter the Shore area, filled with traditional pubs, bars and bistros, sit back and relax as dusk draws in and observe as Leith comes to life.
