Edinburgh Cramond history 2

Water has always been at the heart of Cramond's existence
From earliest times the mouth of the river Almond has provided a safe haven for boats,
as long as they are well secured against the occasional spates,
of which the owners of the yachts presently moored there are very well aware.
By the end of the 18th century three water mills
provided power for three iron forges and two steel mills.
At this time Cramond was separated from Edinburgh by miles of countryside
It is now a very desirable suburb of Edinburgh
