The Cramond Fish has landed!
In April 2009, the Cramond Fish landed on our foreshore. This magnificent work of art was purchased by the local community following a two-year fundraising drive bringing together Cramond Community Council, the Cramond Association and the Cramond Heritage Trust.
The Cramond Fish is seven feet high, ten feet wide and six feet deep, weighs eight tonnes and is carved from a 460 million-year-old piece of pink corennie granite. It was created by Ronald Rae, a sculptor with a national and international reputation. Ronald lives in Cramond and carves his sculptures behind Cramond Kirk.
On this page, we showcase a variety of images and video clips of the Fish following its official ‘baptism’ on the Cramond Foreshore in April 2009.
