Location: Portobello, Edinburgh

24 hours

Edinburgh

Once the holiday resort of choice for holidaymakers throughout Scotland, today Portobello Beach might not have quite the same draw but it still remains popular for its fine view across the Firth of Forth and location just three miles north of the city centre. The Promenade provides visitors with a pleasant route to stroll along, while there are an increasing number of independent bars and cafes springing up. Portobello Beach was once the envy of many a seaside town with a pier, lido and funfair. Stripping back the attractions has allowed for a little bit of seaside peace and quiet amongst the beautiful sands.
