Lovely location and lovely village. But be prepared for noise. It's directly in the flight path for Edinburgh Airport and the planes can be intrusive.

Be sure to get yourself down to the lovely village of Cramond. The highlight is the low tide walk to Cramond Island. Kids love it, as do adults. The village is so pretty, and there are numerous paths for walking and cycling. Also, lots of coffee/te shops, pubs and places to get ice cream.

Cramond Village itself is very small and I wasn't in love with the pub/cafe selection, but the village is charming and has a beautiful waterfront location. The walk over to Cramond Island is worth 5 stars...if the tides are right and you get to head over, it's a really wonderful experience. The views over to the Dalmeny Estate and Castle... More

Very cute village, called on Saturday night for food in local pub but they were only serving sandwiches! Will return when in the area for a walk to explore more. There was an appalling smell in the area that night!!!

A very easy walk until the falls where there is steps but if you take your time these are no problem if you follow the path you will come to a lovely old arched bridge then if you keep following the well marked foot path you will reach the top of the walk with a fantastic steak house to try

The Romans built an impressive camp on this site and its also been identified as a Mesolithic site too! Plenty of interesting hand historic sites to see along with a charming village environment and pleasant estuary situation which makes for a bit of paddling and pottering too. Well worth a visit

Explored out to the west of Edinburgh and found an absolute gem of a beach at Cramond. A long-sweeping sandy bay, with a causeway out to Cramond Island, which was a beautiful walk in itself. Make sure you time your walk with the tides though, if you get it wrong you're there for the night!
