Cramond Island is a tidal island about one mile out to sea, which is connected to the mainland at low tide. A paved path, exposed at low water, allows easy access. This causeway runs at the foot of a row of concrete pylons on one side of the causeway, which were constructed as a submarine defence boom during the Second World War and are one of the most striking sights in the area
