Geocache Description:


This cache is situated on Cramond Island in the Firth of Forth.
It can be accessed from Cramond on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Where there is plenty parking at N55 58.778 W003 17.943
It is a nice walk out, so enjoy the views.

As this island is a tidal island make sure if you go out you can get back. Here are the tidal times for Leith, add 4 minutes to get the times for Cramond. You are safe 2 hours before and 2 hours after low tide.
For added safety I advise that you check the times with the Forth Coastguard telephone number 01333 450666, and also read the notice board displayed at the beginning of the causeway.
You can now also text CRAMOND to 81400 and you'll get safe crossing times for free. You can view an information poster here.

Don't get caught out like others before you. (Visit Link)

Walking across the beach is only advisable if you know the area. You can find yourself in difficulty with soft mud and sand otherwise.
