Kitesurfing near Cramond

Cramond

Kite surfing has recently become more popular around Fife and the Lothians.  Sites include St Andrews, Longniddry, and Gullane - and occasionally Cramond.

Sailing at Cramond is best with a NE wind, but the prevailing wind is SW.  When these photos were taken, there was a good steady strong wind from the NE.

The Photo

Here a kitesurfer catches the wind and takes to the air.  In the background is the coast of Fife on the northern side of the Firth of Forth, about five miles to the NW of Cramond, with the hills of Fife beyond.
