The Water of Leith Visitor Centre is situated in a renovated schoolhouse by the Water of Leith. It combines a free exhibition together with a cafe selling teas, coffees and snacks. There’s also a gift shop selling books and souvenirs. The Centre is accessible to wheelchairs throughout and caters well for families with young children.

The facility serves as a base for our volunteer conservation activities and includes rooms available to hire for events and birthday parties.

The Visitor Centre and Cafe is open every day 10.00 am – 4.00 pm (check with the operators, this information is correct at the time of writing, on 22 October 2023).

The fun interactive exhibition also fully open.

The Trust’s objectives are to conserve the Water of Leith and its environs, promote the natural and built heritage of the river, advance education and benefit the community, by:

– Raising awareness of the river.
– Providing teaching and learning services for all age groups.
– Operating the Water of Leith Visitor Centre as an educational visitor attraction and community resource.

– Encouraging responsible access to, and recreational use of, the river and its walkway.
– Promoting the sustainable use and management of the river.
– Working in partnership with others.
