  • Must make a booking for a guided tour. Lots to see in this fine if now crowded out building. Leith has a special place in Scotland's Maritime history. A Georgian gem of architecture and maritime histo...  more »
  • It is a good opportunity to meet the naval history of Scotland, but it is better to have time, many things to learn, observe and listen, and the departure good souvenirs at reasonable prices.

  • First of all, there are 3 kirk gates in Edinburgh, so have the post code at hand when you by taxi to the museum. To visit this museum, which is not possible on the weekends, you have to make an appointment first. No sooner said than done. On time at the museum, the door was opened by the curator, in this case, an anthropologist, who has been a year or 6 in this museum guided tours. He is very well aware of the history and none of my questions went unanswered. The museum itself is not so great, really nothing more than the Hall, as well as a room on the ground floor and 1 large room on the first floor. But filled with maritime treasures of old navigational instruments to whale teeth. The model of a cargo ship by the Glen Line seems an anachronism! What I own a very interesting piece was made, was a flat box in which metal plates as well as the contours of the holds of a ship. This was used to weight and balance calculated? Again, the museum is not big, but if you are interested in Maritime Affairs, sure do! Access to the museum is free, however a donation is appreciated. On one side a pity that the museum can be visited by appointment only, on the other hand that way.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
