Cramond Island Walks

Fancy something a little different? This walk to and from Cramond Island is just the ticket. One of several islands lying in the Firth of Forth, the island is a third of a mile length, the walk to the island must be timed carefully as it can only be accessed when the tide is out. These times are listed in a noticeboard at the beginning of the crossing and are also listed online here

There are a couple of different routes with the beach walk along the causeway to the island being the shorter option. Or enjoy the 4.5-mile walk from Silverknowes to Cramond Village, skirting along the River Almond and ending at Cramond Brig.

It’s well worth taking a look around the village itself. It is home to a Roman fort built in 140AD. The fort was occupied by the Romans from its construction to 170AD and then again from 208AD to 214AD. Nearby Cramond Tower dates to the 15th century and is also worth a look. There is also an interesting art gallery in the village. Cramond Gallery Bistro is a great spot to come for lunch after exploring the island and village.
