This photograph looks into the entrance to Fort House, from North Fort Street.

Fort House was built on the site of Leith Fort.  Some of the high walls that surrounded Leith Fort and the old guard house at the entrance are still standing.  The guard house can be seen in this photo.

There is a plaque on the outside of the wall beside this entrance.  The plaque reads:

LEITH FORT

DESIGNED BY JAMES CRAIG IN 1779

LARGELY DEMOLISHED IN 1950S
