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.

Here,  windsurfer passes close to the shore at Silverknowes, heading to the west towards Cramond.  Cramond Island, about a mile to the NW can be seen behind the surfer.
