Old Cramond Brig by Tom Gomez

Currently unavailable for purchase

Crammond Brig (old Scottish for bridge), where the original 15th-century bridge once stood and served as the original coach house for coaches and travelers heading south into Edinburgh.

The Brig had immortality bestowed upon it by Sir Walter Scott with his description of how Jock Howieson rescued the disguised King James V from a fight and received lands around Braehead for service to his monarch.

The bridge has been replaced by a modern steel and concrete one a little further up the river. Now it forms part of a very pleasant river walk.

    The walk from Crammond up to and beyond the bridge is absolutely lovely. The bridge is right on the edge of Edinburgh, but you would never know you were close to the city.

    Lovely shot. You’ve made me go all nostalgic – I used to live in South Queensferry and enjoyed walking around Cramond…

  • Thank you Ann, it is a lovely area. I also live in South Queensferry. When did you move away?

    About 5 years ago (2004). I used to live on Society Road. We lived in Queensferry for over 20 years, so I think it will always feel like ‘home’. I just found your other Queensferry pictures and now I’m feeling quite homesick! Lovely photos by the way!

  • We have lived here for about 24 years. I’m, pleased you are enjoying my images of the Ferry. They are mostly of the bridges, but I have tried to add some other shots as well.
