Taking Blue out gives us extra reason to see cool places around Edinburgh. We took him out with our parents to check out Cramond Island. It’s an island off of the village of Cramond with views of the Forth Rail Bridge and Granton/Leith. It’s an interesting little spot because when the tide is high, you can’t walk across to the island. Nobody lives on the island, but the Romans may have used it for a fort or harbor. It was also used for sheep, fishing, a holiday home, and for defense during the World Wars.
It’s about 45 min – 1 hour away from the city centre by bus so it can be a long journey, but it was a cool walking spot. Blue seemed to have a blast, playing with other dogs and getting muddy in the water.
If you’re planning on visiting (from the City Centre), catch the 41 from Princes Street and after 31 stops, it’ll take you to Cramond Village. Just make sure you check out the tide forecast so you don’t get stranded on the island.
Where should we take Blue next?
