Just got back from this huge place! Think there's still Alot more to see but I ran out of time. After living up to my username and swining around like an idiot trying to find access, I finaly did :D I now know I need to invest in a better camera bag. Great site, I really enjoyed it. Thought I was going to dye of a heart attack with running up and down the metal staircases, there was hundreds of them! Had a wee 180 skid down a snowy hill on the way home and crashed into the side curb! I know your not supposed to break but there was a 1 way bridge ahead lol

Anyway, found this info on the place:


"Fountainbridge was, once a major industrial area close to the centre of Edinburgh.

- The North British Rubber Works had a large manufacturing plant beside the old canal basin.

- St Cuthbert's Coop had a dairy, with the stabling for their horse-drawn milk deliveries nearby

- William McEwan's established Fountain Brewery in Fountainbridge in 1856. The company merged with Younger's in 1931, then with Newcastle Breweries in 1960 to form Scottish & Newcastle.

S&N opened a new Fountain Brewery at Fountainbridge, on a 22 acre site beside the Union Canal in 1973. The company also retained their older premises on the opposite side of the main road, Fountainbridge.

In 1995, S&N took over Courage to form Scottish Courage."
