View of Leith Harbour from 1820

This is a story of a port on the east coast of Scotland, standing on the Firth of Forth just north of Edinburgh, into which since the 1920's it has been absorbed. However it may not look much to the outsider but within its small compass it has seen and been involved in a very great measure of the History of Scotland.  


This site aims to tell some of that great story...
