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 windsurfer is carried just clear of the water by his kite.  Running across this photo is the submarine defence boom, linking Cramond and Cramond Island.

In the background is the shoreline of Dalmenny on the southern side of the Firth of Forth (left) and the shoreline of Fife on the northern side of the Firth of Forth (right).

Shipping can be seen in the terminal at Hound Point, off the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, about a mile to the east of the Forth Rail Bridge.
