The sun shone and it was pleasant walking around the refurbished river area. Plenty of bars and restaurants, amazing seafood. If you had the time could walk too or from Edinburgh city centre and the Royal Yacht could be visited.

We walked to Leith from our apartment in Stockbridge, and it was a pleasant walk through woods and along the river. The walks along the waterfront in Leith are also very pleasant, but it is clear that the area is becoming increasingly gentrified. There are...More
