Great find. Beautiful scenery and lots of fresh air. Plenty of spaces to park. Ideal for walking cycling running or read a book, or just sit and look at all the different dogs being walked

Hosts a park run every weekend and is beautiful at anytime on any day. Always busy on a nice summer day. Sometimes hosts Travellers and can be left messy after this.

This is a place which visitors often pass by, especially if their time in Edinburgh is short. Drive there-the parking is free, or get the 41 bus! Cramond village has the beautiful Cramond Kirk to look round, and some fascinating 16th century houses. The foreshore...More
