Eagle Rock

  • Cramond, north-west of Edinburgh



Look for evidence of the Roman carvings on this rocky outcrop on the Firth of Forth. 

Eagle Rock is a weather-worn carving of an eagle, thought to date to the Roman occupation of Cramond, between about AD 140 and the early AD 200s. 

It’s located near Drum Sands on the Firth of Forth, an internationally important site for feeding and roosting waders and winterfowl.
