Leith has been Edinburgh’s seaport since the 14th century, but it fell into decay following WWII. It's now undergoing a steady revival, with old warehouses turned into luxury flats and a lush crop of trendy bars and restaurants sprouting along the waterfront leading to Ocean Terminal, a huge new shopping and leisure complex, and the former Royal Yacht Britannia.
