Description

This goods depot was opened immediately to the east of South Leith station. It allowed the goods station at the station to become a coal depot. It opened around 1881, along with the Leith Edinburgh Dock.

North of the goods station was the marshalling yard Leith South Yard for the docks some of which remains open, although unused.

To the east is the Seafield Level Crossing.

The depot remains rail served although there is very little traffic. (Date of change of name to Leith South uncertain.)
