Lamb
(The Lamb, Lamb Island)

The Lamb, or Lamb Island, is a small uninhabited islet lying 500m (550 yards) off the East Lothian coast, between Fidra and Craigleith a mile (1.5 km) northwest of North Berwick. The island is noted for its seabirds, including cormorants, shag, guillemot and herring gulls, and is a designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Protection Area (SPA). Geologically, the Lamb is part of the same Lower Carboniferous basalt sill as Fidra.

In 2000 the island was acquired by controversial Brazilian-Israeli-American entrepreneur Camilo Agasim-Pereira when he bought the Barony of Fulwood and Dirleton. He sold it for £30,000 in 2009 to Israeli psychic-magician Uri Geller, who was convinced the island was connected through an ancient ley line with Robert the Bruce, King Arthur, Stonehenge, the Pyramids and the Knights Templar.

Lamb is flanked by two rocks known as North Dog and South Dog - together regarded as the Lamb's sheep-dogs.
