Leith Dock Basin


This evening, I am posting information on the Dock Basin on the Leith Waterfront which lies on the southern coast of the Firth of Forth (estuary) in eastern Scotland.

Leith is a town situated directly north of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city.

This particular location attracts large visitor numbers each year due to a combination of the (now retired) Royal Yacht Britannia and a major shopping mall (Ocean Terminal).

This basin is where the Water of Leith  (river) flows into the Firth of Forth. Here can be found a number of docks including the Albert Docks.

The video clip shown above was taken from a point close to the Royal Yacht and covering about 180 degrees looking north.
