The village and sea shore here are always beautiful no matter the weather. The village kirk (church) is also lovely. Don't waste time going to the pub though as it is shabby, the beers are poor, the food is terrible and the staff don't seem to care about customers.

this is a small quiet village with a few nice resturants , there is not a lot to do but it has a very nice walk up the river and along the coast , but watch watch out for dogs dirt it was everywhere.

Nice when the weather is good but if you're short of time it's a bit of a trek especially as the boatman has gone and you cannot carry on walking to South Queensferry

We booked for 3 and arrived spot on time; staff (all 2 of them) took no notice of us; they were rushed off their feet and manager had 2 mobile phones, one to each ear, at one time. We took the nearest available table at random. Menu much reduced since we last visited (first time was 1969 and food and service have been up and down like a yoyo since then). Steak pudding pastry was almost impossible to bite through but the filling was almost the best I have ever tasted. On average the food was good. Service was smiling and friendly after the panic when we arrived. Very limited choice of wines. We heard that the owners, Samuel Smith's Tadcaster Ales, has an aged and very eccentric boss who even had the bedroom televisions removed so as not to have to pay for a licence - same at another of their pubs, the Blue Bell at Heversham where we used also to be regulars.(No longer!)
On the whole good but definite reservations (no pun intended).

Around 142, Roman forces arrived at Cramond by order of Emperor Antoninus Pius, who had given them the task of establishing a fort at the mouth of the River Almond. There's not much to see of the Roman elements but the scenery is exquisite with wide horizons across to Fife, the Forth Bridges, Cramond Island and foreshore where you can walk, run cycle, skate or chat with friends.
