Can anyone ID this seaside location close to Edinburgh? (perhaps Portobello??) Thanks

    Where is this photo sourced from? I can have a look into this!

    Thanks Ronan!  It's actually a personal photo of my grandmother and great-grandmother (unfortunately both no longer with us), presumably taken sometime in the 1960s (?).  They were both Edinburgh residents and often travelled I'm guessing this location is within easy reach.  The geography looks quite unique so was hoping someone may still recognise it :smile: Appreciate any help you can offer.   Thanks again.

    Hi @JoDoBo

    I have been having a look at beaches around the Edinburgh area and by looking at Google Maps it looks very similar to Kinghorn Beach in Fife. Some of the buildings are different but the landscape looks pretty much the same.

    Thanks @VisitScotlandLindsay!  I think you're right :)  Very much appreciate the help.  Enjoy your weekend!
