Walks through Dalmeny
is a public walk beside the Firth of Forth through Dalmeny Estate.
This has been a popular walk from South Queensferry to Cramond for
many decades, ending with the short passage by ferry across the
River Almond at Cramond.
Cramond Ferry is now (2005) temporarily
closed, so on approaching Cramond, the walk now takes a turn
to the right and follows the western bank of the River Almond to
Cramond Bridge beside the Edinburgh to South Queensferry road.
The map above is a 1920 map. Little has changed within the
Dalmeny Estate since then, but to the south of the estate a new A90
road has been built linking Barnton to the Forth Road Bridge at
South Queensferry. Most of the old road still exists, reaching
South Queensferry via Hawes Pier beneath the Forth Rail Bridge.
It is the old road that appears on the map above.
