Granton Breakwater

This photograph is taken from beside the 'white box' at the end of Granton Harbour's Eastern Breakwater, towards the Western Breakwater, soon to be transformed as part of the Edinburgh Waterfront project.

There is a sailing boat entering the harbour after competing in an East Coast Sailing Week regatta and a plane just visible above the Western Breakwater as it approaches Edinburgh Airport beyond Cramond.

Cramond Island is about four miles to the west of Granton Harbour, and the Forth Bridges behind it are about five miles further to the west.
