History of Granton

Granton is a district in the north of Edinburgh, Scotland. Granton forms part of Edinburgh’s waterfront along the Firth of Forth and is, historically, an industrial area having a large harbour. Granton first appears on maps in the 17th century relating to the now demolished Granton Castle. The name also appears in Granton Burn, which now runs through Caroline Park down to what was Granton Beach. The name is presumed to come from Grant’s Town or Grant’s Dun/hill. (Wikipedia). Please find more information about history of Granton www.grantonhistory.org
