On the last May Holiday weekend The Festival of The Sea was staged in Leith. Gone now but Leith is still the working port of Edinburgh, berth of cruise and navy ships, and home of the Royal Yacht Brittania (the Queen's holiday cruiser turned tourist attraction). Leith has traditionally been dog rough and somewhat shady in parts, but the luxury flats are now springing up like nobody's business. Intend to post more pics of the fest when available, meantime here is me in front of some of the visiting tall ships.
Edinburgh Festival is an important event in August annually. Most performers from other country will have their shows in Edinburgh such as drama, dancing, opera, etc.
