Brass rubbings trail

On the waterfront

The promenade rubbings trail on the Edinburgh waterfront. There are six plaques in the sea wall and in the path itself. The plaques show scenes from the past and present.

The trail starts at Granton Harbour, where the plaques show an oyster catcher and a shoal of fish. At Silverknowes there are plaques of Lauriston Castle and Davidson Mains Railway. The most recent additions are of the Cramond Walkway, the Romans at Cramond and the iron forge that used to operate there.

The children's drawings were translated from paper into bronze by local artist Kate Ive. Kate's work can be found in the
