Edinburgh Waterfront

Western Harbour

Edinburgh Waterfront was until recently an area dominated by Granton Gas Works,  small industries, wasteland.

Granton Western Harbour, once  part of a thriving port, was partially reclaimed during 19th century and left to become a wasteland as the photos above show.  This area is soon to be developed, beginning in 2004, as part of the Edinburgh's Waterfront project.

The small building peeping over the grass towards the left-hand side of the second photo belongs to the forth pilots (I think).  It is near the northern end of Middle Pier, close to where Granton Harbour opens into the Firth of Forth.

Click here to see another view over wasteland from the same point, this time looking to the north-west.
