Things to do in Leith

We love Leith.

There are so many quirks and hotspots to see, and here are our favourite.

#1 | Walk around the Shore

On a sunny day there is no better place to take a wander in Edinburgh. The Leith shore is a delight with a number of quirky monuments, plaques and sculptures along the way.

#2 | Walk the Leith Waterway

Of course Leith is the start of the famous Leith Waterway which extends all the way out to Western Edinburgh. There is no better place to hop onto the walk and enjoy what is one of the best things to do in the city.

#3 | Eat at The Kitchin

The Kitchin is one of the Edinburgh culinary scenes bright lights and is based in sunny Leith. Pop along next time to have the perfect finish to a day in the area.

#4 | Find the street art

Leith isn't a hotspot of street art but there are a couple of interesting pieces that are well worth finding.

#5 | And find this mural...

We stumbled across this on a recent Leith walk. Makes such a difference to the streets!

#6 | Board the Royal Yacht

It has to be said that the Royal Yacht sits in the harbour in Leith. It is worth a visit or a sneeky peak like Pete here.
