Coastal Edinburgh: Portobello beach

Filed under: photos, seaside — Tags: , , , , — EdinburghEye @ 8:00 am

The beach at Portobello is brownish, gritty sand – comfortable enough to lie out on in the sun, and excellent for building sandcastles. It is so frequently trodden – city beach – that above the high tide mark, I don’t recall ever seeing it smooth.

The sea wall is high above the beach, and there are cobbled ramps down to the sand.
