Dive into Leith’s famous maritime history. Once the base of the Incorporation of Mariners and Shipmasters, this elegant Georgian house holds an outstanding collection of maritime treasures.
Set up in the 1300s, the Incorporation collected port dues and provided assistance to Leith’s maritime communities for centuries. Generations of masters and members of Trinity House were closely involved in the maritime development of Leith.
