I took the #41 bus to the last stop. Almost there and I asked the driver about the wooded valley I had seen on the way. It was Crammond village and I stayed on the bus one stop on its return journey into Edinburgh and then walked down. Down to the village, down to the sea.
The cafe was closed – it closes at 4.30pm, but the path by the River Almond led a couple of miles up to where it met the road at Gamekeepers Lane to catch the #41 back into Edinburgh.
And on the way up the river I saw this and thought how some sights in nature just wrap themselves up in a ball of loveliness and make you stop.
