The curving "Banana flats" in Leith were home to Simon "Sick Boy" Williamson in Irvine Welsh's book. Cables Wynd House was built in the 1960s in the "Brutalist" architectural style. Historic Environment Scotland said it had decided to recognise the flats and neighbouring Linksview House after consultation with residents.
