PHOTO – Cramond Island walk and sunset


Cramond is a beautiful area of Edinburgh for a stroll at any time. With a bit of careful planning, you can walk out to Cramond Island when the tide is low. You can check timings here but please check the board at the start of the causeway to ensure you have enough time to walk out and return safely.

Last night it was a balmy 18 degrees as we set out at 7.45pm to catch the low tide and the sunset at 8.36pm.

The path at low tide can still be a bit slippy
