Craigleith Quarry

After building Edinburgh's New Town (two miles away) the stone from Craigleith was sent all over the UK - and beyond. Transport must have become way easier when the quarry became rail connected. We are on the trackbed looking north, just to the right of Craigleith Jn. There was a small works ahead and the quarry track curved to the right.
