Granton Harbour


The dredger is beside Middle Pier, Granton Harbour.  The building on the left, or one very similar is still standing (2002) - but probably not for much longer. 

The area along the shore of the Firth of Forth to the west of Granton Harbour is to be redeveloped as Edinburgh Waterfront.
