Commercial Quay lies at the heart of the popular Shore area of Leith – a vibrant Edinburgh neighbourhood only 3-miles North of Edinburgh city centre.

The Shore has an excellent array of amenities available to further compliment the offering at the quay itself. This includes numerous well-established restaurants, cafes and bars as well as a Malmaison Hotel, all within a 5-minute walk from the quay.

Ocean Terminal retail and leisure complex is also less than 5-minutes walking distance. This offers a range of national retailers including Marks & Spencer, Boots, HMV and Debenhams. There are also a variety of bars and restaurants, a VUE Cinema complex and PURE Gym adding to the already extensive leisure offering in the area. The Royal Yacht Britannia, one of Scotland’s key tourist attractions, is also permanently moored at Ocean Terminal.

Transport links in the area are good and Commercial Quay benefits from a high frequency bus service running from Leith into the City Centre, with bus stops positioned immediately outside the quay.
