Water of Leith

Barges

'Mary of Guise' is the first of two barges to be moored beside the Shore on the Water of Leith,  then converted into office accommodation.  The barges are moored a few yards downstream from the liner 'Ocean Mist' now converted to 'Cruise' bar and restaurant.

This photograph was taken in June 2006, looking down the Water of Leith towards Leith Docks.

Now a second barge, named 'La Belle Esperance' is now (October 2007) moored beside it.  These barges now provide floating office accommodation for  a national computer and photocopying company and a large corporate identity and branding organisation.

NOTE:  - 'Mary of Guise' was the mother of Mary Queen of Scots.

-  'La Belle Esperance' was the ship that brought her to Scotland.

The Shore

'Mary of Guise' can be seen in the photo below, moored at The Shore, behind the cruise liner Ocean Mist', which has now (October 2007) been converted to become 'Cruz  Bar and Restaurant'.
