Cramond Island4/10/2015 03:59:00 pm
I made a trip out to a small place just outside of Edinburgh called Cramond Island with my sister a few weeks ago. Cramond lies on the Forth, a mere 40 minute bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh. The place itself has been mentioned in quite a few of my lectures as it has a great history behind it, so obviously the geek in me wanted to take a trip out there.
Typical Scottish weather (very unlike the weather we've been having this last few days) left us cold to the bone, despite the many many layers.
When the tide is high, the little walk way to the island is covered in water, but as the tide lowers the walk way becomes clear and its safe to walk there. And we managed to miss judge the times and weren't able to actually reach the island. We were able to walk along some of the island, but since the tide was still relatively high we were a little scared we would either get stranded, or a huge wave would come and sweep us off.
