Cramond is situated in the north-west of Edinburgh, on the east bank of the River Almond where it flows into the Firth of Forth. Dating from 8500BC, it is the oldest known site of human habitation in Scotland. Much later, the Romans chose the site using the river mouth as their harbour, building a fort above it. Now the village is much recommended for a lovely shore-line walk (perfect for children to ride bikes), a nice place for food and drink at the Cramond Inn nand a number of historic sites to visit including Eagle rock near the Drum Sands.

Edinburgh City Centre

The Old Town of Edinburgh is built on a ridge that rises gradually from the Palace of Holyrood to Edinburgh Castle. There are staircase lanes, called Wynds, that lead off this 'Royal Mile' that give the impression of the city being built on multiple levels and buildings that date from the 11th Century. The New Town is also a World Heritage Site with its mix of Georgian town houses and the earliest examples in Europe of tenement flats. The views to be had from the Castle, Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill are dramatic and inspiring.
