Cramond

Boats and Swans on the River Almond, and the Old Ferry House

This view looks down from Cramond Esplanade, over the River Almond at low tide.  This spot, close to where the ferry used to take walkers across the Almond to the Duke of Buccleuch's Dalmeny estate for the five mile walk to the Forth Bridges, is now popular for feeding the swans.

Are there any plans for the ferry to start operating again.  It last operated before the 'Foot & Mouth Disease' restrictions, but now I believe that one or both of the landing stages have been declared unsafe.
