Saint Margaret of Scotland (the queen in question) died over 900 years ago. There is talk of naming the next bridge after her. Well… the voting is under way, out of the five names available my vote is for a “Queensferry Bridge”
The Picture above is the 120-something year old Forth Rail Bridge. There is a younger Road Bridge across this water way and the next bridge will be a road bridge too.
But who cares about all that. My Mum’s sister, Julie, and I went to Cramond Island (along the same coast). I took a bunch of pictures.

|Low-tide-only walkway. It was super cold. We bumped into a young family that my aunty knew. Their young boy looked at his Mum, shivering, and said
“This is my worst day ever”. haha
|Made it! View of The Edinburgh coast. People are often rescued from here because they horse about on the Island and forget that the tide comes in, stranding themselves.|
