Granton is a waterfront district in the north of Edinburgh, Scotland that is situated along the Firth of Forth. The district became an industrial powerhouse in the 19th century because of its harbour that was perfect for the importing and exporting of goods. The area was eventually connected to the rest of the city by rail and ferry and the population slowly began to grow. Now that industry in Granton Harbour has largely dried up, Granton has become the centrepiece of the massive waterfront regeneration programme and has seen an influx of new restaurants and shopping centres.
- Walk along the harbour on the shores of Granton Beach and you will be afforded lovely views of the sea, as well as several lighthouses that make for a scenic stroll in this Edinburgh suburb.
- Stroll through Granton Square to see some of the historic buildings, including the HMS Claverhouse, as well as several pubs that will give you a unique Edinburgh experience.
- Explore the well-kept grounds or take a guided tour through Lauriston Castle that is marked by its 16th century tower and still has the original Edwardian-era furnishings in the interior.
Granton is connected to Edinburgh by a number of public transportation options, so getting there is easy. There are several bus lines that link Granton to the city centre. Those travelling to or from the small cities near this area, including Leith or Silverknowes, as well as the western suburbs can also use bus services, as there are several routes that pass through this area. Although local train and tram services have been cut off in recent years, there are still motorways connecting it to the city and the surrounding areas for those with hired cars.
