What you'll do

In September, Leith named one of the coolest city neighbourhoods in the world. It took the 24th spot. Situated to the north of Edinburgh, just a 20-minute walk from the city centre, Leith offers grit. Its vibe is unrivalled. I’m a born-and-bred Leither, and rarely do I need to leave the EH6 postal area. During this experience, let me take you on a wee journey around my home. We’ll meet on The Shore. Situated at the mouth of the Water of Leith, it used to be the heart of industry. We’ll step back from the water’s edge and admire some of Leith’s architectural gems, such as Lamb’s House. We’ll then meander along the water toward Newhaven, a conservation area. It is an excellent example of Scottish fishing villages and it's not to be missed. There’s scope to enjoy the best fish and chips you'll ever have at Newhaven (all fish is from there), or some enjoy coffee at a local roaster's café.

Jemma

I’m super passionate about where I come from and love nothing more than sharing it with visitors. I’m a competent photographer—shooting with Fujifilm— but love nothing more than shooting with my smartphone. I think that exploring new places through a lens gives you a renewed sense of the place. Your senses are heightened, and you become more aware of things that you might have otherwise missed.

Our time will be split between Leith—staying close to the water and admiring the nearby buildings—and Newhaven, an old fishing village. The walk will be two miles from beginning to end.
