Leith Western Harbour

The Photograph

This view looks NE along the road that runs parallel to the West Breakwater of Leith Western Harbour.  Between the road and the breakwater (on the left-hand side of the road in the photograph above) four blocks of apartments are being built as part of the Edinburgh Waterfront developments.

The first, and most westerly block of apartments to be built was Platinum Point.  Building is just getting underway on the second site.  The view above shows the third site (in foreground) and fourth site (in background).

All the land in this photo has been reclaimed from Leith Western Harbour over the past few years.  There are plans to create a public part on the right-hand side of the road in this photo.
