Edinburgh Waterfront

Western Harbour

Due to be Redeveloped

Edinburgh Waterfront was until recently an area dominated by Granton Gas Works,  small industries, wasteland as in this photo.  This area is now (in 2002) part of Edinburgh Waterfront, due to be redeveloped.

At one time there were large Eastern and Western Harbours at Granton.  Now most of the Western Harbour has been mostly reclaimed, leaving just the small area of water above, and no boats when this photo was taken.

It was from this point that a catamaran Ferry operated for a few years [around 1990?] providing a ferry service between Granton and Burntisland, about five miles to the north on the Firth of Forth.
