Portobello

Along the coast of the Firth of Forth is the beach resort of Portobello. Developed by Victorian nobles in the nineteenth century, this community has a charming combination of class and fun. Along the shores are amusement centres, restaurants, and pubs. As a suburb of Edinburgh, it is conveniently close to that city and makes for a relaxing retreat or quiet place to return after shopping in the city. The local art community is committed to the revival of the city, especially Big Things on the Beach, a public art trust that seeks to engage the potential of art on the waterfront. Build sandcastles, swim, shop, or party away at Portobello, a great place for a holiday.

  • Take a step off the beaten path and go to Figgate Burn Park where you can walk gingerly around the pond, enjoy the pleasant birds, and let your cares drift away.
  • See Portobello Tower, built in the eighteenth century using medieval methods with no apparent way inside.
  • Walk the boardwalk alongside the beach in Portobello and observe or take part in something for every age, from bingo to ice cream to sailing.

Portobello is about thirty minutes east of Edinburgh’s city centre, on the coast. Take the A8 motorway into town then continue on all the way to the beach, where this suburban beach town is located. Portobello is not large and is easy to navigate, with one main road and a few blocks on either side. Driving is the most convenient way to go, so you should use a taxi service or a rental car of your own, especially if you’re coming from Edinburgh Airport on the other side of Edinburgh. Lothian Buses serve the area, and might be more affordable than a taxi. There is currently no train service that serves Portobello exclusively, but movements are in place petitioning this.
