Why you should visit it

Cramond is a perfect daytrip location to enjoy sun, sand and sea. For those interested in World War history, there are several buildings and barracks remaining on the island which can be explored. Passing the causeway path, the concrete triangles of the submarine defence are the most obvious military sights.

Special tip

Please double check tidal times so that you don't get stuck on the island and have enough time to make it ashore safely.
