Cramond is one of those Edinburgh suburbs which has a real village feel to it. This walk starts from the car park next to where a Roman fort was discovered, takes you down to the sea and tides permitting, across to an island that was once part of the Firth of Forth's military defences, before taking in the River Almond Walkway all the way through the riverside woods past the impressive Cramond Falls to reach Cramond Brig.

Cramond is very popular with locals and there are always people here walking their dogs, but it doesn't seem to be very well-known outside Edinburgh.

The walk across the causeway is of course dependent on tide times. Safe crossing times can be obtained at the Causewayhead, or by texting the RNLI's tide service (text Cramond to 81400). If the tide is in the walk can still be undertaken, just don't try and cross.

There is a fine pub in Cramond and cafes at Cramond and Cramond Falls.
