Newhaven Harbour Wall - Description
This picture shows a view over the Firth of Forth, taken from the base of the harbour wall at Newhaven at low tide. Newhaven is now dwarfed by the Port of Leith to the east, but still holds a small fleet and is the departure point for tourist cruises on the Firth of Forth, one of the attractions in Edinburgh.
Newhaven used to be a small village north of Edinburgh, but has now been absorbed as one of the suburbs. However, it is full of very distinctive buildings and is protected as a designated Conservation Area. Newhaven lies on the banks of the Firth of Forth almost directly opposite Kinghorn and Burntisland.
Newhaven was a thriving fishing village and center for boat building. In 1504 King James IV of Scotland established a new harbour here for building warships, and built the carrack Michael, launched in 1510.
Between 1572 and 1890 Newhaven was also a major oyster port and played a role in the whaling industry. The Newhaven lighthouse on the harbour wall was built in 1869 and the town boasted a large Victorian Fishmarket.
