Leith Links, Edinburgh Situated approximately two miles northeast of the city centre, the area of Leith Links forms part of Edinburgh’s increasingly popular Leith district, which recently featured on The Times’ list of ‘Coolest places to live in Britain’. The Port of Leith, with its proud identity and sense of community, boasts a fascinating heritage, with many of the old bonded-warehouses and grand merchant buildings having been given a new lease of life as part of a comprehensive regeneration project. Residents enjoy the open green spaces of Leith Links and Claremont Park right on their doorstep. These are home to children’s play areas, football pitches, tennis courts, a cricket pavilion and a community croft. Meanwhile, the services and amenities around Great Junction Street and Leith Walk are minutes’ walk away, and just around the corner is The Shore: a cosmopolitan hotspot of artisan cafés, trendy bars, traditional pubs and award-winning restaurants. More extensive shopping is available at Ocean Terminal shopping centre, which accommodates a cinema complex, a 24-hour gym and over fifty high-street stores. Primary and secondary schooling is provided locally and the area benefits from fantastic public transport links travelling across the city and beyond, including Leith Walk tram stop just minutes’ walk away, and swift and easy access to the A1 and Edinburgh City Bypass.
