Great visit to Chambers Street to say hello to the Cramond Lion. This ancient statue from the Roman time of occupation was found near to the fort remains, at the mouth of the River Almond in 1997.
The museum building was opened in 1998, it’s almost as if the sparkling sandstone lion was waiting to be discovered, so as to go to a drier place to devour its prisoner.
Then I got spooked by the Ballachulish figure & ancient stones carving section. Something primeval stirred, hairs rose as there was no one around apart from skulls, the statue, the carved stones, and a discreetly hidden guard.
