Sleeping 2(4) and 2(3)

The ancient village of Cramond, on the banks of the Firth of Forth, is now very much part of Edinburgh, but has managed to retain its quiet, rural atmosphere and all of its old world charm, with the water on one side and woodlands on the other. The fact that a Roman artefact was found quite recently in the harbour here bears witness to how ancient the settlement here is. At the same time, there is a regular city bus service into town, so there is no need to worry about parking in Edinburgh's less-than-car-friendly city centre.

River Almond

The River Almond flows into the Firth of Forth at the village, and on the banks of the Almond, on a quiet and leafy lane which ends just beyond the cottage, is Dowie's Mill. Dating from about 1690, this old stone, mid-terraced cottage has been divided into two parts, which both offer very characterful and comfortable holiday accommodation.

There are delightful riverside walks right from the door. The waterfront with pub and bistro is just a short stroll from the house while to minutes upstream is a historic bridge and another pub. It really is a most delightful location and there is parking at the door.

You are on the right side of town for the airport and for driving to the north across the famous Forth Bridge to Fife, Perthshire or the Highlands or west to Stirling and the Trossachs, all of which are feasible for a day trip. Closer by, if you do not wish to spend everey day in the city or touring, there are golf courses, swimming pools and other attractions such as Hopetoun House close by.

Special rates will apply for Festival and New Year periods at both properties.
