Monday 19 March 2012: Cramond from Dalmeny

Quite a long walk today, following part of a walk from Edinburgh Geology - An Excursion Guide, which I bought at the Christian Aid booksale last May.

Starting from Cramond Brig we walked down the west side of the River Almond through the Dalmeny estate to the seafront where in past times a ferry provided a crossing. We followed the coast along past Eagle Rock, where a worn carving in the rock is reputed to date from Roman times. Continuing on past Snab Point, there is a long stretch of rock at an angle of 45 degrees which made progress somewhat difficult but we scrambled back up to the path and returned to the car through Long Green and Glenpunty woods.

We covered about 5.5 kilometres distance and up to 6o metres above sea level over half a kilometre, I feel I've burned a few extra calories to make up for the weekend.
