“A walk to remember !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Ever imagined walking on the sea...well your dream has almost come true. Just check the tides and times and voila! you are walking on a path which is mostly under water during high tides. Planned a trip with a group of friends to Cramond island. A place well connected by Lothian bus no. 41. At the end of the walk we arrived on a tiny island like place. Bon fire, fondues etc defined my first visit to Cramond. Most of the group chose to stay back, I returned, make your choice !

“Great town, wonderful island, dreadfully rude pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

A luvly wee spot. The walk over to Crammond is beautiful. I make this a definite show when I have visitors to stay. The only advice I would give is to stay away from the pub. Extremely rude people! I have had guests come from all over the world to Edinburgh only to be embarrassed by an unbelievably hostile service there. Manners cost nothing and unfortunately those at the Crammond Inn fail to realise this. If there was a competitor pub next door, they would quickly go out of business....luckily, there are a few nice cafes, so pop in there for refreshments instead.

“cramond Island adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Checked the tide times and turned up on a beautiful Sunday morning. Walked out to the island and enjoyed the views . It's a place steeped in history, and the remnants of WWII are fascinating .
Well worth a trip.

“Waste of time!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Bus 41 from George Street to Cramond 10 Sept 2013. Surprised that there was so much ancient history here; Edinburgh Tourism seems to ignore the place and, once there, no history books on sale, indeed no postcards, and nothing 'antique' and collectable. A snobby tearooms, and the Cramond Inn, deplorable! An impolite landlady who took 15 minutes aiding an American at the bar, he ordering food for three people at a table, with queries of 'Mushy peas? What's that?' and resulting shouts to his friends, 'Do you all want mushy peas with your steaks?', even more muddled explanations. The barmaid dashes away to serve drinkers in another bar, then her mobile rings, now the American is back with his demand for beer. Barmaid ignoring the queue of potential drinkers, no commiserating glance either. I tramped off, beer on hand in George Street.
About the only activity in Cramond is apparently the mighty airliners a 1000 feet overhead, zooming in and out of Edinburgh Airport. The Romans were lucky they never permanently settled there!

“Gorgeus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Beautiful, words can't explain them. Sailors around and if you walk towards, there is River Almond with a waterfall.
