Biggar Ramblers enjoyed a lovely walk from Cramond Village to South Queensferry recently passing many points of interest including Cramond Island and the dragons teeth, Eagle Rock, Dalmeny House with the statue of King Tom overlooking the shore, Barnbougle Castle, Hound Point Terminal, Hawes Pier. having walked beneath the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge, the group had a great view of the Forth Road bridge and the Queensferry Crossing, seeing all 3 bridges together was indeed something special. As well as Cramond Island with the Isle of May in the distance, the walkers could see the islands of Inchkeith, Inchmickery and Inchcolm with Inch Garvie beneath the Rail Bridge. This was an interesting walk of around 8 miles. On reaching South Queensferry a well earned refreshment and cake was had by all before heading for the bus back to Cramond Brig to complete the remainder of the walk to Cramond.
