Ronaldson's Wharf, and its like, is what Leith has come to know as "Luxury Appartments". The fact that, until ten years ago, those who could have been characters in Trainspotting would have quite happily shot up on the very ground these £7 million flats were built is neither here nor there for the luxury inhabitants, ready to pay £300,000 a shot for the waterfront views.

I like the building, I have to admit. The waves of the glass reflect the waves of the Water of Leith (although I don't see any suitcases containing bodies up on the penthouses). But every time I pass in the evening no-one seems to be at home. Too busy working, no doubt, to pay for the mortgage.
