Seafield The gallery starts with a dozen 2016 photos before the westward walk sequence begins. Search limits to matches found. Click Load More if it appears.Looking over the houses at Abercorn and Willowbrae and the patchy slopes of Whinny Hill.Zoomed in a little more on the patches of gorse on Whinny Hill.As seen from the slopes of Whinny Hill, the northern part of Arthur's Seat. Visible in the middle distance are Piershill Square East and Piershill Square West. In the distance to the North is Craigentinny Golf Course, Seafield and the Firth of Forth.Seafield is not number one as a tourist destination. Part of Leith Docks is visible behind.300m further east is this railway siding on the north side of Seafield Road. The wagon bears the legend English Welsh & Scottish Railway.It's obviously been a while since this train went anywhere.SLEEPING BEAUTY! proclaims the bilboard to passing motorists on Seafield Road. The train sleeps in the siding but its beauty lies in the eye of the beholder - should the beholder be impressed by heavy metal engineering.The engineering is sufficiently innovative to be patented. The text is cast in steel.A few metres east is the entrance to Seafield Crematorium and Cemetery. A footpath passes above the entrance on a former railway line.About 110m east of the the crematorium entrance is this barely used footbridge over the branch railway line. A few paces away is a crossing making climbing unnecessary.climbing the steps onto the bridge affords views. This shot shows Seafield Road through the rusty ironwork.This is the view east from the bridge, showing the rail crossing and the tenements at the corner of Seafield Street - which leads to the Eastern General Hospital.A familiar view to motorists heading along Seafield Road from Leith to Portobello. The triangular hill on the horizon is North Berwick Law.Looking back west along to the tenements beside Seafield Street. There's a freight train - perhaps taking imported coal to Cockenzie Power Station, and a cyclist headed east.Preserved by additional brickwork and perhaps one day resurrected as a historic facade. Salamander Street connects Baltic Street to Seafield Road and runs east-west between Leith Links and Leith Docks.This and the remainder are from a walk westwards from Portobello to Leith.To continue to Leith Docks via Seafield see the separate page.Arthur's Seat from Seafield shore1st view of giant graffitigiant graffitigiant graffiti YOUTZ CROOKSThese steps are at regular intervals along the sea wall.These steps are at regular intervals along the sea wall.Looking back to the east towards PortobelloNorth Berwick Law visible in the distanceNorth Berwick Law visible in the distanceThe path on top of the sea wallApproaching Leith Docksderelict, vandalisedMarine EsplanadeAlbert RoadNo obvious escape to civilisation...Unofficial pedestrian route to the next part of Albert RoadAlbert Road heading WNW to the closed gate at Bath RoadAlbert Road heading WNW to the closed gate at Bath Road (getting nearer)I had to climb over this gate to get into Bath Road.
