Stayed in Leith for a week, really enjoyed it. Good restaurants, cinema, excellent bus service into the town. Only wish that we had got a weekly bus ticket rather than paying for each single bus journey and they only take cash. Would stay there again.

The sun shone and it was pleasant walking around the refurbished river area. Plenty of bars and restaurants, amazing seafood. If you had the time could walk too or from Edinburgh city centre and the Royal Yacht could be visited.

There is a great spirit of local identity in 'Sunny Leith', a reference to the sunny disposition of the residents rather than the weather, or so I have been told. My wife and her family come from the area! There certainly is a lot to...More
