In 2009, who bought Lamb Island located in the Firth of Forth, Scotland?
The Lamb, sometimes called Lamb Island or just 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 ancient 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.
Uri Geller (born 20 December 1946) is an Israeli-British illusionist, magician, television personality, and self-proclaimed psychic. He is known for his trademark television performances of spoon bending and other illusions. Geller uses conjuring tricks to simulate the effects of psychokinesis and telepathy, though he consistently claims his powers are real. Geller's career as an entertainer has spanned more than four decades, with television shows and appearances in many countries.
