Northern Lighthouse Board

2001

Northern Lighthouse Board had a depot on West Harbour Road, Granton for many decades, until around 2002.  The frontage included a lighthouse, and behind were yards and workshops.

This view from the lighthouse looks to the north towards the Firth of Forth.  In the immediate foreground is the hatch into the lighthouse dome. 

Through the windows, the view looks to the north towards the Firth of Forth.  The coast of Fife can be seen, upper left.  The island of Inchkeith is in the upper right of the picture, just visible to the right of Granton Harbour entrance into the Firth of Forth.

The view looks across a stone yard, and the industrial landscape of Granton Western Harbour.  The stone yard has now left Granton and the whole area is now being redeveloped as Edinburgh's Waterfront.
