Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Edinburgh - 11miles

Portobello is a lovely seaside town with cafes, bars, parks, swimming pool and Turkish baths and shops including a bookshop. There is a long promenade which you can walk, skate or cycle along and the sea of course you can swim in. Portobello is perfect for visiting the Scottish capital Edinburgh by bus, by bike (20mins) or even walking in through the royal Holyrood park. Also close by to lovely walks and hikes in East Lothian. Ideally placed to get to the Scottish Borders or Highlands within a couple of hours.

Edinburgh is a very historic town, a world heritage site with its castle, the Palace of Holyrood, the Scottish Parliament and our extinct volcano Arthur’s seat right in the city capital. There is plenty to do and of course the famous Edinburgh Fringe and Edinburgh Arts Festival. Wander up and down the Royal Mile, plenty of art galleries and tours of haunted Edinburgh and climb up Arthur’s seat with a picnic to take in views of the city.
