Leith is nestled in the mouth of the Water of Leith on the Firth of Forth coast. Situated to the north of Edinburgh, Leith is a council area of the city and is a 14-minute drive to the center of Scotland’s capital. Leith has been the main port for the city of Edinburgh since the 14th century. Popular areas of Leith include The Shore, a waterfront development at the port. There is a fine selection of restaurants, bistros and pubs in this and the surrounding areas. Nearby, the Royal Yacht Britannia is moored at the Ocean Terminal Shopping Center, one of the more interesting royal residences. Buses run regularly between Edinburgh center and Leith, but locals recommend a walk along the Water of Leith, a pretty footpath which ends up at The Shore. While there are plenty of amazing bed and breakfasts in Edinburgh, we recommend staying at an Airbnb in Leith. Check out these top 20 Airbnbs in Leith, Edinburgh, UK.
