Cramond, one of Edinburgh’s most desirable locations, has a long and compelling history. It was certainly occupied during Roman times, the name Cramond derives from the Roman ‘Caer Amon’ meaning ‘fortified place on the River Almond’. In fact, a Roman fort entrance was discovered within 30 metres of the apartments! Today’s Caer Amon reinforces the charm of a location that has been enchanting and enticing people for over 2,000 years.
Cramond is blessed with excellent transport links. Edinburgh city bypass and the country’s motorway system, including the M8 and M9, are minutes away. Similarly, there is easy access to Edinburgh city centre, which can be reached in 15 minutes. Edinburgh Airport is on your doorstep, as is South Gyle train station. And, with the imminent arrival of Edinburgh’s tram system, getting to and from Cramond will become even easier.
At Caer Amon you’re close to the essential features that make Cramond one of Edinburgh’s most sought-after areas. Outstanding family and leisure facilities abound. Royal Burgess Golf Club is close by, as are excellent local schools, cafés, restaurants and pubs. Cramond village and foreshore, where you’ll find Cramond Boat Club, are a few minutes’ stroll away. Behind Caer Amon a walkway leads to ancient Cramond Kirk. In the opposite direction lies the historic port of Leith. And a local cycle path links to the main Edinburgh network.
Caer Amon sits in one of Edinburgh’s most magnificent settings. With carefully landscaped gardens surrounding the apartments, woodland beyond, and the shores of the River Forth just a few minutes’ walk away, private walkways give you exclusive access to the meadowland immediately to the north of the site and wherever you look you are afforded views.
