From the website Scottish Places:

A former iron-milling and oyster-fishing village on the Firth of Forth, Cramond was probably a Roman port and major supply base in the first century AD. Lying on the east side of the River Almond, Cramond has a picturesque core which is popular with day-trippers who for a long-time were able to cross the Almond by a small ferry to the Dalmeny estate. Cramond developed in the late 19th century when the railway came to nearby Davidson's Mains, with villa housing and later bungalows extending the village to Barnton to the south. Notable buildings include Cramond Tower (15th Century), Cramond House (1680), late 18th century terraced cottages and Cramond Kirk (15th century, with a stunning interior). There is a footpath to the old mills.
