Neighborhoods

Leith used to be a town and port on it's own but it was so prosperous Edinburgh took it over. It's a vibrant place full of lovely bars cafes, restaurants and quirky shops. The leith shore is picturesque and we get the odd cruise shop docking at Ocean Terminal where the Royal yacht Britannia resides. Well worth a visit

Portobello is a bus ride away (around six stops) It's a lovely beach with bars cafes restaurants and shops. A favourite bar of mine is The Guild of Foresters. If you want to go a little further north Berwick and Dunbar on the East Coast is lovely accessible by bus
