If you have a car, drive down to Portobello for a walk on the beach and an explore through the town. You can also get a bus. Favourite spots include The Portobello Bookshop, Wild Flower Shop and Bross Bagels.
Lovely restaurants and friendly faces along portobello prom to enjoy, great for a walk also.
A lot of visitors are surprised to discover that Edinburgh has one of the best urban beaches in the UK. Great for a stroll on the sand, a coffee (or beer) on the prom ... or join the hardy locals for a swim in the North Sea!
A great beach to visit in all seasons. The promenade had an array of food and drink places to choose from. Just wear something warm if you plan to sit outside and enjoy the views.
Edinburgh's Seaside. A visit to Portobello isn't complete without a walk along Porty Promenade. In fact, I'd hazard a guess that you'll spend the majority of your stay here as it's so lovely!
The number 26 bus will take you to this lovely beach town in about 20 minutes. Even on a cold day you’ll see locals taking a dip! If you’re not that brave pick up a coffee from the green van by the local swimming baths and take a walk along the prom!

Рекомендации местных жителей
“At 820 feet, Arthur's Seat is the highest point in the 640-acre Holyrood Park. The spectacular views from the top encompass the whole city all the way to the mouth of the Forth. The easiest way up is from Dunsapie Loch, where there's a good-sized car park. Alternatively, you can walk from the Old Town, heading up past the Dynamic Earth science center onto a path that leads from Queen's Drive. Also easy to climb are the dramatic Salisbury Crags, a series of 151-foot cliffs adjacent to Arthur's Seat. Other features in this huge park are the ancient cultivation terraces, some of the earliest and best-preserved examples of ancient farming practices in Scotland, and the picturesque ruins of the medieval, St. Anthony's Chapel.”

“The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art — also known as "Modern One" — is another must-visit for art enthusiasts. Here, you'll find displays of paintings by Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso; surrealistic works by Rene Magritte, Joan Miró, and Max Ernst; and contemporary paintings by Bruce McLean, Callum Innes, and Gwen Hardie. The gallery is also well-known for its impressive collection of sculptures. Notable examples are works by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, and David Hockney. The extensive grounds of this impressive gallery are also worth exploring. Across the road is what's come to be known as "Modern Two," housed in an old hospital built in the 1830s. Here, you'll see works by Surrealists, including sculptor Eduardo Paolozzi, as well as an impressive recreation of his original London studio. A number of works by Dada are also on display. ”
