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

This view looks NW into the Firth of Forth from the promenade at Silverknowes.   Two kite surfers are heading to the west towards the submarine defence boom that links Cramond with Cramond Island.

The hills of Fife on the northern side of the Firth of Forth are in the background.
