Here is an interesting view of Granton Square - for anybody interested
in old transport.
This is the Granton tramway terminus, with five trams, a bus and a
pram. Western Granton Harbour and some large ships are just visible in the
For a few years around 1990, a catamaran ferry operated between Granton
Harbour and Burntisland in Fife. There has been some recent
discussion of introducing another catamaran to Fife, but as far as I know
there are currently no firm plans to do so.
Now much of Western Granton Harbour has been reclaimed, and earmarked
for development as part of the Edinburgh Waterfront Project.
The buildings at the centre of this picture are alongside the central
pier entrance to the harbour. To the right of the central pier (out
of the picture and extending as far as the eastern breakwater) is Eastern
Granton Harbour, still used by sailing boats.
Today, Granton Square has a larger roundabout, with the building in
this picture (a public convenience) still existing.
