Leith Business Front
Leith sits just north of Edinburgh right on the coast. It’s a surprising town because most visitors and tourists who end up here still think they’re still in Edinburgh. The lack of difference is a great strength for any company looking to set up base near the city centre. It’s quite surprising to find that the area is still known as a separate entity when it sits so close to the hub of action in Edinburgh, but it really helps any business working on a budget.
There are a large number of business parks and office buildings in Leith, as many companies use it as an unofficial Edinburgh base. Some of these include the Edinburgh Business Centre, Catpell House, Bonnington Industrial Estate, South Fort St Business Park, Elizafield, Anderson Place, Maritime Lane and Timber Bush.
Luckily for anyone who needs to get to the airport, if you’re travelling by car, you can avoid the city centre completely by using the A90 and getting to Edinburgh International in just 25 minutes. And if you were looking to drive from Leith to Glasgow, it has an average journey time of only 1 hour. With Waverley station just a short distance away (1.5 miles), you have access to some of the main railway links in Scotland and the rest of the UK. A train journey from Edinburgh Waverley to Glasgow Queen Street takes just an hour on average.
Because it is so close to Edinburgh City Centre, some of the top universities in the country are right on its doorstep. From the University of Edinburgh to the Edinburgh College of Art, Royal College of Surgeons, Basil Paterson College and the Royal College of Physicians, you’re never too far away from a highly regarded academic institution.
Everyone knows Edinburgh has a cultural side that suits all appetites. Leith has much more of a laid back feel, with restaurants and cafes dotted along the coastline. Going to a show or seeing the sites around the capital is as easy as taking a stroll up Leith Walk towards the Omni Centre, one of Edinburgh’s busiest get together spots.
