Cramond Island - connected to the shoreline of Edinburgh only at low tide - is a fascinating place to visit, but requires careful planning to fit with tide times. There is a free car park in Cramond but it's often busy on weekends, it is also possible to get a bus to Cramond. If using public transport, another bus can be picked up at Cramond Brig to return to the city centre or you can walk back along the outward riverside section.


Surfaced promenade, tidal causeway and earth path; can be muddy on the island.
