About Portobello

Portobello is located 3 miles from Edinburgh city centre along the Firth of Forth. It has a long promenade fronting a wide sandy beach. The Portobello Swim Centre situated on the promenade is home to one of only 3 remaining Turkish baths is Scotland.

What the locals say

Elizabeth who currently lives in Portobello tells us a little about the area:

It's a lovely wee community on the edge of a big city so you get the best of both worlds. You are right next to a lovely beach, which is great for walking the dogs, and there are lovely wee shops and places to eat and drink down the main street and on the promenade. There are excellent bus links into town so it never takes long to get to the city centre, and it's only five minutes drive from Fort Kinnaird and the Jewel for shopping.  I wouldn't want to live anywhere else now that I have lived here.

Whether you are looking for a house, flat, bungalow, apartment, new build or any other kind of property for sale or for rent, ESPC may have the one in Portobello that you are looking for.

What's your favourite thing about living in Portobello?
