Edinburgh’s village by the Forth.

Caer Amon lies in Cramond - one of the capital’s hidden gems and an historic, much sought after residential area, nestling along the Almond Valley on the banks of the Firth of Forth.

Cramond has a long history as a settlement and a woodland walk from Caer Amon takes you past the remains of a Roman fort, which sits beside the beautiful church, dating back to the 15th century. At the foot of the valley lies the harbour, once a thriving port carrying iron from the foundries that once lay along the River Almond and now a berth for yachts and popular resting place for walkers to admire the views across the Forth to Fife.

It’s easy to forget you’re so close to the city when you have such natural riches on your doorstep, but The Crescents are less than 6 miles from the heart of Edinburgh. For shopping nearer to home, The Gyle shopping centre and range of supermarkets are a short drive away. There are excellent local state and private schools and The Crescents is well placed to access both Heriot Watt University and Edinburgh College’s Granton Campus. And if you’re keen to keep fit, there are several golf courses nearby and Cramond Boat Club is based at the nearby harbour.
