Leith Gazetteer July 2011

64 Disused Whaling Stations, Leith Harbour - Gazetteer, July 2011The construction appears to be corrugated iron onhorizontal boarding on building felt on substantialtimber studs with further building paper and aninternal layer of boarding (though most of this hasbeen covered over with hardboard). The entrance dooris in the southeast corner in a lean-to corrugated ironentrance porch leading into a stair hall. The bedroomsare off either side of the central corridor as in the otherBarrack buildings.Whereas the roof is in reasonable condition on the westside, on the east side the whole of the north sectionis missing and a good deal of the boarding has alsofallen in. Internally at first floor level the floor underthis area now has a substantial amount of wet rot. Itseems likely that this end of the building will collapsein the next few years.50.4 Southeast elevation 50.5 Staircase at the southern end of the Barracks
