Portobello Baths and Beach

No reviews, be the first!

Edinburgh is not the first place I think of going to the beach. But on the other side of Arthurs Seat from the city centre is the suburb of Portobello, which has a long beach fronting onto the Firth of Forth. Lovely for strolling and gazing across the water.

If you fancy a swim, and the water’s a little too cold – which I admit it’s going to be for most of the year – then head for the Portobello Baths on The Promenade. Here is one of the fabulous swimming pool and Victorian Turkish Bath houses that you find dotted throughout many British cities.
