Leith is where the more discerning Edinburgh folk live and for good reason, it has everything that one could possibly want within walking, at most cycling, distance; good eateries, good butchers, great fishmongers, you name it Leith has it. On top of that, and from my personal perspective the best thing, I have lost count of the decent watering holes within walking (or staggering) distance of the front door. Leith was, and to some extent still is, the port area of Edinburgh, and is, reportedly, the redlight area of the city, although I have yet to come across any ladies of negotiable affection, so I think that things may have changed a bit in recent times. The Shore (see pic) area is just stunning and is where most of the better eateries and watering holes are to be found, one in particular (which has a resturant attached) "The Shore" has a live jazz trio on Tuesdays and Saturdays and can be highly recommended for the music and the food, the choice of beer is a little less inspiring but they serve a decent pint nonetheless, and there is always bottled beer.
