Although we're back home from Dumfries, we're still on staycation and enjoying the local area! One of our favourite walks is from Cramond Brig to South Queensferry. It passes through some lovely scenery and on a very sunny day is an excellent butterfly walk.
Yesterday, although it was sometimes sunny, the skies were more often very moody and dramatic
these are great for wildlife and very attractive.
A large part of the walk goes alongside the Firth of Forth and offers lovely views or the water
curlew, oystercatchers and redshanks and several groups of sandwich terns, Crafty Green Boyfriend caught this tern in flight with a fish in its mouth!
The walk also passes by Dalmeny House
The food and service weren't as good as they've been in the past, but the beer was excellent and the beer garden is lovely
