Leith Local History Society

Leith Guidebook

Cllr Gordon Munro, Vice Convener of the Economy Committee, introduces the guidebook

‘Leith is an area with a long and fascinating history. This guidebook has been produced to invite you to explore the area for yourself, as a local resident or a visitor, and find out more about Leith’s hidden gems.

The book has been developed in partnership between the Leith Local History Society and the City of Edinburgh Council. Thanks and acknowledgement must go to the History Society and in particular their Chair, Mr Jim Tweedie, whose excellent work and extensive knowledge has helped in the production of this guidebook.

I hope you enjoy using this book as a means to find out more about Leith, its people and its history.’
