Get a bus or taxi. Head to "The Shore" for a walk. OK it has a rough edge but what port doesn't. Lots of very good places to eat and drink. Something new opens each year.

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

What a fantastic place to stay, lots to see and do. Plenty of bars and restaurants around. Hidden gems, nooks and crannies by the water. A convenient location for exploring Edinborough. The number 22 bus, brilliant value.

Leith is the old maritime center of Edinburgh, so it is an historical place and still an important place especially in order to load or unload passengers or cargo

Formerly red light area and docklands with a mixture of funky original pubs and new gastropubs, fish and chip shops and the great Harburn Hobbies, centre for model railway enthusiast, as I was.

Hi, Cost would be around £20. Thre is also an airport bus that goes to Proces St and then a bus to Leith No 16 which would be cheaper but longer time and depends how much luggage you have.

Leith is quite a big area with one if it's borders right near the centre so it could be anywhere from £5-15 depending also in the day (surcharges apply late at night and on weekends). If you download the Uber app it gives... More
