Cramond Heritage Trust

About this Organisation

Based in the historic village of Cramond in the North West of Edinburgh, our Education Centre provides a summer attraction for finding out more about one of the oldest inhabited areas in Scotland.

We have evidence of settlements from the Mesolithic period (8500BC), the Roman Period, Dark Ages and through to the present day with a permanent exhibition regularly updated, maintained and staffed by Volunteers. We also provide guided walks during the year and speakers are available on a range of subjects including Archaeology, Roman Fort, Industrial heritage, Stately Homes in the area and much much more.

In addition our education centre and archives can be viewed by appointment and they cover 350 Archaeological digs in the area, local Kirk and public records for Cramond, Local History and Genealogical information on past families in the Parish of Cramond and surrounding area. We also have an extensive photographic library, both past and present.
