Giant Hogweeds

on reclaimed land in Granton Western Harbour

Edinburgh Waterfront was until recently an area dominated by Granton Gas Works,  small industries and wasteland.  The wasteland in the reclaimed part of Western Harbour can be seen in these photos.

It is surprising to find such land within three miles of Edinburgh City Centre.  It is not likely to be in this state for much longer!

More of Granton Western Harbour is to be reclaimed in 2004, and the area is to be cleared for housing and other developments as part of the Edinburgh Waterfront project.

Photo 1 looks to the south-west towards Granton's three gas holders, two of which are to be removed as part of the Edinburgh Waterfront project.

Granton's Western Breakwater can be seen in the background on the left-hand side of photo 2.

The photo was taken from land now reclaimed from Granton's Western Harbour, looking to the south-west towards the Granton gasometers.
