Cramond Island has WW II fortifications and is linked to land by a causeway with a line of concrete pylons on one side, constructed as a submarine defence boom. At certain low tides sand extends to the island, tempting visitors to visit the island, though occasionally some are stranded by the incoming tide.
Cramond (Gaelic: Cathair Amain) is a village situated on the east side of the River Almond where it enters the Firth of Forth forming a natural harbour, now a suburb of Edinburgh, in Scotland.
Excavations have revealed a Roman past and, as of 2004, the oldest human site in Scotland. It was the birthplace of the Scottish economist John Law.
