Granton terminus  -  Granton Square

Granton Terminus

Granton Square has been used as a terminus for Edinburgh trams and buses for many years.  Here is a photograph of Granton Square, taken in the 1950s.

Looking down on Granton Square and across to Granton Harbour  -  possibly about 1950

In the recent view, at the top of this page, we look to the east across Granton Square.  New apartments built recently on the corner of Lower Granton Road and Middle Pier can be seen on the extreme left of the picture.

The road leading straight ahead on the right of this photo, past 'Square Snack' Take Away and the former church is Granton Road.  It provides a view to the north over Granton Harbour.

This was once the route that the trams took from Granton Square, then later the route for bus services services 8, 9 and 10, but now, in 2009,  no bus routes use this part of Granton Road.

Route 32  -  History

Routes terminating at Granton Square have changed over the years.

Route 32 began as an Edinburgh Outer Circle route, circling the whole of Edinburgh.

By 2005 or possibly earlier, the southern part of the circle was missing.  The route ran:

FROM:  Clovenstone in SW Edinburgh

TO:       Royal Infirmary in SE Edinburgh.

From January 21, 2007:  The eastern part of the route was removed.  The route then ran:

FROM:   Clovenstone in SW Edinburgh

TO:        Pilton (Scottish Granton Gas HQ) in NW Edinburgh.

From April 6, 2008, a short part of the route was reinstated.  The route then ran:

FROM: Clovenstone in NW Edinburgh

TO:       Granton in North Edinburgh.

 I took the photograph above before the route changed again!
