Water of Leith

PHOTO – Water of Leith in the snow

As you may know, The Water of Leith is one of our favourite spots in the city, particularly the stretch between Roseburn and Stockbridge. These photos were taken after the snowfall in early January, on a day when the winter sunlight added a touch of warmth to the already beautiful scenery. We hope you enjoy […]

PHOTO – Water of Leith on Christmas Day

The Water of Leith between Stockbridge and Dean Village was particularly beautiful on Christmas Day. Frozen water, wintry light and hungry ducks galore. We hope you enjoy these photos – and that you’re having a very happy Christmas! Tweet

PHOTO – New addition to Leaf family, Edinburgh

Yesterday we posted photos of the Water of Leith Leaf family with a light dusting of snow on top.  Today it seems there’s been a new addition to the bench, a snow-baby, as well as a whole lot of fresh snow. Tweet

We love the recent additions of the Leaf family on the Water of Leith walkway, but were concerned for their welfare after the snowfall last night.  We’re glad to report that everyone is fine with their new snow coverage and don’t think it will be that long before they have some snow friends. Updated Sunday 28th […]

This evening, I caught half of the project on my compact camera as I took a stroll […]

PHOTO WALK – Water of Leith (Balerno to Slateford)

There are places on this stretch of the Water of Leith where it’s easy to forget you’re in a city. Not just on those parts which run next to Edinburgh’s outlying suburban ‘villages’ of Balerno, Currie and Juniper Green either: the section from Colinton to Slateford also has a wonderful countryside feel. The Water of […]

PHOTO WALK – Water of Leith (Roseburn to Dean Village)

This short stretch of the Water of Leith is one of my favourite walks in Edinburgh. Starting at Roseburn, near Murrayfield, the path leads you past old mills, roaring weirs and under towering bridges. This section ends at the historic Dean Village: here you can carry on to Stockbridge and beyond, or leave the waterside […]
