Leith's cruise terminal is based just three miles from the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, offering cruisers the chance to visit this enchanting city either pre or post-cruise. Leith also offers a fantastic cruise terminal for those looking to cruise from Scotland.
As a district of Edinburgh and the city's cruise terminal, Leith is based on the south shore of the Firth of Forth and at the mouth of the Water of Leith. The city of Edinburgh is the second largest in Scotland, after Glasgow, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The UNESCO listing was awarded in 1995 due to the unique character of the Medieval Old Town and planned Georgian New Town, with 4,500 listed buildings in the area.
