The End of the Breakwater

Western Breakwater, Granton Harbour

Granton's Eastern and Western Harbour are separated by Middle Pier.  The Eastern Harbour is still used, mainly by yachts.  The Western Harbour has been partially reclaimed, and until recently was left as a wilderness, but it will soon be developed as part of Edinburgh's Waterfront project.

Photo 1 looks towards the broken pier at the end of Eastern Breakwater.

Photo 2 looks into Granton's Eastern Harbour, bounded by Eastern Breakwater (left-hand side of photo) and Middle Pier (right hand side of photo).  The  white building in the top-left corner is Chancelot Flour Mill at Newhaven Harbour.
