Lamb, sometimes called Lamb Island or The Lamb, is a small (approx. 100 m (330 ft) long x 50 m (160 ft) wide), uninhabited island between the islands of Fidra and Craigleith in the Firth of Forth, off the southeast coast of Scotland. The Lamb is flanked by two "sheep dogs" – North and South Dog Islands – which are basically small skerries. Like the other islands off North Berwick, the Lamb is a result of volcanic activity millions of years ago.
The Lamb, along with North and South Dog Islands, was previously owned by Camilo Agasim-Pereira, Baron of Dirleton and Fulwood. On 11 February 2009, the island was bought by Uri Geller, who states that he believes that it is a hiding place for ancient Egyptian treasure, for an undisclosed amount.
