Granton Western Breakwater

Seen across Granton Harbour mouth from the end of Eastern Breakwater

A yacht leaves Granton Harbour, passing in front of Western Breakwater

The tip of Cramond island is in the background.  The Forth Bridge is behind the yacht, lost in the mist.

This scene may soon change as Edinburgh Waterfront developments in spread through Western Harbour.

Proposed developments

This view, above,  of Granton Western Breakwater and harbour entrance above may soon change.

There are proposals to enclose Granton Western Harbour more, leaving it with a narrower exit and a wider breakwater between the harbour and the Firth of Forth, as can be seen in the map at the top of the image below.
