Enjoy the feel of an old fishing village which the suburb of Cramond still retains.
Completed with a quaint row of whitewashed houses, the small sandy beach is a popular choice with Edinburgh residents as well as tourists who head here to walk and cycle on the beachside paths. It’s ideal for a family day out or simply a relaxing stroll and offers splendid views of Firth of Forth.
There is plenty of history to see in the area too with Cramond boasting one of the longest known periods of human settlement, and refreshments are available at the nearby pub or the nice coffee shop.
It’s also possible to walk over the causeway to the island at low tide - do keep an eye on the tides though as it is possible to get stranded on the island.
