Lightbulb Lamb

Craigleith (Scottish Gaelic: Creag Lìte) is a small island in the Firth of Forth off North Berwick in East Lothian, Scotland. Its name comes from the Scottish Gaelic Creag Lìte meaning "rock of Leith"...Craigleith makes up the chain of islands near North Berwick along with Bass Rock, Fidra and The Lamb...The Lamb is flanked by two "sheep dogs" - North and South Dog Islands...The Lamb was previously owned, with North and South Dog Islands by the Brazilian Camilo Agasim-Pereira (Baron of Dirleton and Fulwood)... On 11 February 2009, the island was bought by Uri Geller, who believes that it hides Egyptian Treasure, for £30,000...

Orion and nearby Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, are inextricably linked to both the ancient Egyptian belief system and the mysterious symbolism inherent in today’s bizarre Freemasonic rituals, practiced since the brotherhood’s earliest days, but now little understood—even by Freemasons, themselves...Could the key to what has long been referred to as “The Lost Secrets of Freemasonry” have been hidden in the light of day, east-southeast of Bannockburn, on June 24, 1314?
As my boat arrived at its landing point I was more than surprised to see about ten people on the island walking down the small hill towards me. Because Craigleith is uninhabited with no dwellings of any kind, I was also amazed to see a rope ahead of me attached to the side of the rock, acting as a hand rail. "The relevance of all this was soon to become apparent". In the meantime, having landed on Craigleith I watched the Braveheart depart and a RIB arrive to pick up and take the group off the island. Within a few minutes the sound of engines had disappeared and I was left alone.
Craigleith is a laccolith, a lava dome. The Lothians are dotted with evidence of ancient volcanic activity, such as the Bass Rock and Arthur's Seat. It is made up of essexite which is popular for making curling stones...Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated in the centre of the city of Edinburgh, about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle...Many claim that its name is derived from the myriad legends pertaining to King Arthur, such as the reference in Y Gododdin. Some support for this theory may be provided by the fact that several other hilltop and mountaintop features in Britain bear the same or similar names, such as the peak of Ben Arthur (The Cobbler) in the western highlands, sometimes known as Arthur's Seat, and Arthur's Chair on the ridge called Stone Arthur in the Cumbrian lake district...,_Edinburgh
