Move to screen port's history on cruise liners

AMBITIOUS plans to screen the history of Leith on cruise liners entering the port are being considered to boost tourism.

Campaigners for a new museum for the area want visitors arriving by boat to learn something of Leith's past in the hope of attracting them to spend more time away from Edinburgh city centre.

Ian Gilmour, the minister at South Leith Parish Church, said: "We want to tell people Leith has 1000 years of history and was once Scotland's premier port."
