You sometimes forget that Edinburgh has a Beach when you in the middle of the Town. Only 20 Minutes with the Bus and you can reach Portobello Beach. Its just a small Beach but with a nice View over to Inchkeith (an island in the Firth of Forth). We arrived in the evening and we just shared the Beach with some Seagulls and Canoeist. The Sky was perfect, even if we had to leave before sundown..
