the stone drinking fountain on the Promenade

This drinking fountain was built about 1870, and closed in the 1950s due to vandalism.

Looking along the Promenade

looking from the water board station at Joppa

The Scottish Water pumping station at Joppa, at the far end of the Promenade, was the last one to be built in the Edinburgh area, and it’s an impressive building with circular stone steps down to the sea.

Coastal Edinburgh: the Promenade

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

The street that faces the sea at Portobello that is called the Promenade on the city maps (Google Maps link) is reached from the end of Kings Road, turn left.

But if, at the end of Kings Road, you turn right, there is a broad, quiet, pedestrian-only pathway (bikes allowed) along which you can walk, with the sea on your left and houses and chip shops and a swimming pool (and amusement parks!) on your right, as far along as where Coillesdene Drive meets the Joppa Road. (Google maps link) It’s a great walk.

There are places for children to play:
