About this walk

This is a great, flat and scenic walk along Cramond promenande (total return distance 4.2miles). You look out across the Firth of Forth throughout this open and wide route. Plenty of room for bikers, kids on rollerskates/bikes, wheelchair or mobility scooters, walkers, kite flyers and runners alike. Always very popular but especially at seasonal holidays (Christmas/Boxing day, Easter etc).

If you park in the public (free) car park at the end of Cramond Glebe Road then you can nip down the few stairs at the north or ramp at the north east areas of the car park to get directly onto the promenande. There is a wide expanse of beach scrub at this end beyond the well paved surface for dogs to bolt about on. You can choose to walk literally along the shoreline or along the paved promenade pretty much the whole length of the walk. As you progress eastwards along the route you can enjoy large open grass areas, beachy bits, a sculpture or two, woodland areas and finally a huge grassy section called Gypsy brae. At the beginning there are many options for ice cream/ pub lunches/ coffee tea etc which you can reward yourself with once you have walked all the way back to the start.

Please note there is a further optional walk route out across the causeway (see photo) to Cramond Island which has derelict WW2 battlements on it... BUT this route out is not maintained and more importantly is SUBJECT TO TIDAL COVERAGE DAILY. You MUST check the tide times before crossing and be SURE you have calculated them correctly or you will get stuck (without shelter) for a minimum of 12 hours. The tide really sweeps in fast across the causeway and many people are rescued by the RNLI every year from the causeway or island itself. Several people and dogs have drowned here - so be warned!!
