The Cramond Island Cuaseway

Cramond

Built as a defence line during the second world war to prevent shallow bottomed boats creeping past between the island and the mainland at high tide. The huge pillars are now an attraction for walkers to the island.

I shot this pic as the tide was swallowing up the pathway of the causeway to the island. Anyone still on the island at this point were there for the night the tide was coming in fast.
