Cramond  Midlothian


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Cramond like this:

Cramond, par. and vil., partly in Linlithgowshire, but chiefly in Edinburghshire, on S. coast of Firth of Forth, at mouth of river Almond, 5 miles NW. of Edinburgh, 5277 ac., pop. 3004; P.O.; has paper-mills and carries on some fishing. It occupies site of Roman sta., and many Roman relics have been found here. ...

Adjacent is the ancient seat of Cramond House; 1 mile S. of vil. is Cramond Bridge; P.O.; 1 mile from the shore is Cramond Island, accessible on foot at low water, pop. 3. In the par. formerly was Cramond Regis, an ancient hunting seat of the Scottish kings.
