Where to stay with children : Leith

edimbourg-Leith-quartier-loger

Once a town in its own right, totally separate from Edinburgh, Leith, in the east, has retained an atmosphere of independence and self-sufficiency. This is the district we recommend to the family.

A happy mix of industrial and decidedly modern influences, the once bustling harbour is now home to two Michelin-starred restaurants and countless other popular establishments.

There are countless small hotels and guesthouses in the area, with prices to suit all budgets.
