The birthplace of the world-famous Harry Potter characters, Cramond is a charming district of Edinburgh that hosted famed JK Rowling as she wrote the pages that inspired a generation to read again. Once populated almost exclusively by ancient Romans, modern-day Cramond enjoys thousands of visitors year after year from all over the world seeking the area’s quaint seaside lifestyle, perfect for reprieves from hustle-bustle cities. This historical destination founded as early as 8,500 BC is world-famous for being Scotland’s earliest settlement. Drawing admirers for nearby Tidal Island as well, Cramond represents Edinburgh’s quaintest suburb, a coastal destination that no visitor to Scotland young or old will ever forget.
- Journey to Tidal Island off the mainland, a favourite attraction amongst frequenting holidaymakers only accessible during low tide via a causeway constructed as submarine defence during World War II.
- Enjoy the Cramond Inn’s famed plain living and high drinking, which famously inspired the humorous University of Cramond account featured in Robert Louis Steveson’s St Ives.
- Explore the coastal village’s picturesque landscapes while cycling, hiking, kayaking, or sailing, favourite activities amongst frequenting holidaymakers.
The village of Cramond constitutes the outer limits of Edinburgh and is located a mere six miles from the city’s bustling city centre. Travelling from downtown areas to this quiet coastline retreat by car takes approximately twenty minutes. Free parking is available at the Cramond Inn car park, which is located within a short walking distance of several breathtaking beaches, though the car park does become particularly crowded during summer months. Lothian Buses provide regular service seven days per week, with buses running every 30 minutes to an hour to and from a variety of stops throughout the city.
