The causeway to Cramond Island is only uncovered at low tide, running alongside a line of concrete pylons which supported a defence boom during the Second World War. The whole area of the Firth of Forth, on the east side of Scotland near Edinburgh, was a major port during this period. Cramond Island was one of many defensive positions which protected shipping from attack by enemy surface vessels, submarines and aircraft.
The island is popular for visits when the tide is low and has attracted an amount of attention from overnight raves.
