Andy Merrylees is by no means alone in his memories of Cramond Island: He
"I remember many moons ago
when we were teenagers we got trapped on Cramond Island when the
tide came in - real rapid if i recall. You were able to
walk out to it then. We were on it for about eight hours. Of course
our parents were not amused, I can tell you. "

Cramond Island is connected to the village of Cramond (in the
north-western suburbs of Edinburgh) by a causeway.
Within a couple of hours of low water, it is possible to cross the
causeway. At high tide, it is covered by several feet of water.
