Musseling In!

Fisherrow Harbour
    Musselburgh, seven-miles east of Edinburgh is one of the oldest settlements in Scotland. The Romans originally built a fort here and as you could say the rest is history.
    The town grew up around the mouth of the River Esk which flows into the Firth of Forth and its  name is derived from the large amount of Mussel beds that can be found along the shore of the Firth of Forth.

     From the sandy coastline you can look straight along to Edinburgh, Arthur's Seat dominates the skyline and the wooden benches dotted along the shore are a great place to sample the shell-fish that the town takes its name after.
