Take a walk with Scran by meandering from Laursiton Castle to Trinity House in Leith - finding our way by using aerial photography, old maps and archive images. A unique chance to see some amazing archive material.
2020 saw 100 years since Leith became part of the City of Edinburgh; prior to that it was a separate burgh. Since we were not able to run these in person during 2020 we are celebrating them this year. Our talks programme explores the rich heritage of Leith and its unique identity. We’ll stroll through the archives to Leith, looking at aerial perspectives, maps and Scotsman imagery along the way. Jackie Sangster is a Learning Manager at Historic Environment Scotland who works with scran.ac.uk.
