Last month it was revealed that one of Portobello's most popular watering holes could be set to disappear for good as plans emerged for the property to be transformed into flats.

Now, the 6 bedroom detached property at 77 Promenade has appeared on estate agents Rettie & Co's website for a cool £950,000.

The popular Dalriada has been run by Terry and Alison Magill for the past 16 years, however the owners have now decided to sell up and retire.

Flats plan for Portobello's popular Dalriada Bar as owners set to sell up

A planning application has been submitted to Edinburgh Council to turn the two-storey, turreted family-run bar transformed for residential use to form three separate dwellings.

Rettie & Co describe the property as "a unique opportunity to acquire a prominent detached Victorian villa situated on a prime beach-front location on Portobello promenade.

"The property, which offers outstanding panoramic views of the Edinburgh skyline, East Lothian and the Firth of Forth towards the Peaks of Fife beyond; currently operates as a successful family run bar on the ground floor with a spacious five bedroom double upper apartment above.

"Should a buyer choose to restore the two dwellings into one home, this would create an impressive and substantial family abode.

"Alternatively, this presents as a unique opportunity to sub-divide the property into three spacious main-door apartments, each with secure off-street parking and two with private gardens."

The first apartment has an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, bathroom, private garden, and off-street parking.

The second boasts an entrance vestibule, hall, cloakroom, utility room and has a sitting/dining room, kitchen, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two bedrooms and a bathroom on its first floor and two further double bedrooms, a bathroom and storage on its second floor.

Those living in the residence will also benefit from off-street parking, and a main door entrance.

The third apartment within the Victorian villa will have its own entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, bathroom, study, utility room, off-street parking as well as a private garden.

The waterfront pub currently hosts live music and other performances five nights a week.

The Dalriada Bar is expected to close within the next six months.
