Shore - FURTHER INFORMATION

Shore - Edinburgh visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Shore' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Lothian.

Shore was the original Port of Leith in Edinburgh and mouth of the Water of Leith before the port expanded north with a series of docks and piers in the late 1700's. In 1822 the visit of King George IV to Scotland landed at Shore, and 'The Old Ship Hotel and King's Landing' was named after this historic event. The King's Wark pub still exists here.

A sign indicates that, historically, 'Tall masted sailing ships berthed at the Shore, while scores of crewmen loaded fish, coal, grain and hides for export to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. Ships returned with wine, fruit, spices and cloth. As ships grew too large for this shallow river mouth the harbour was moved north but the buildings on the Shore still show evidence of the old port.'

Today, Shore is lined with residential housing, shops, restaurants, cafes and galleries. There are plans to redevelop much of the Port of Leith, which will have a dramatic impact on the Shore area.
