This is to let you know I am planning to visit Granton Harbour in Edinburgh for a possible photoshoot around 3pm on Sunday afternoon. I hope there will be street parking available. Google tells me there is some parking at the Gypsy Brae recreation area nearby if I can’t find anything. You don’t have to go to the harbour at the same time as me, and members who live nearer than me might prefer to visit around sunrise or sunset and get some better lighting conditions. You also don’t need to go this weekend. If you are not working full time, a weekday visit may be less crowded.
There are other photoshoot options available for members who don’t want to travel into Edinburgh, or if Granton Harbour turns out to be too crowded (there were a lot of folk heading for the coast today):
- Craigmillar Castle: Still in Edinburgh but less likely to be crowded in warm sunny weather.
- Fisherrow Harbour, Port Seton Harbour and Dunbar Harbour: Some alternative harbours in East Lothian, with Dunbar easily accessible from the Borders.
- Hailes Castle: An alternative castle in East Lothian. I visited the castle last weekend. There are no staff at the site, but you can wander around the castle grounds. I found a good spot to take photos of the castle down by the river. There is only very limited parking available, so it’s best to arrive early.
Wherever and whenever we end up, we can meet this coming Thursday, 22nd April, to compare our experiences.
Best of luck!
