Edinburgh Waterfront

Gas Holder

This is one of three gas holders that stood on the Scottish Gas site at the Waterfront. 

-  The first gas holder was dismantled  in  2003.  (I believe that was gas holder in 1. above)

-  It is planned to demolish the second in a controlled explosion around August 2004. 

-  The third is a listed structure, and so is protected.  It is to remain on the site.  This is the central gas holder which has an open metal lattice framework.  See picture 2 above
