A surprising Scottish island

Inchmickery is a tiny island in the Firth of Forth, Scotland, about a mile North of Edinburgh and only 100 metres by 200 metres.
During both World War I and World War II the island was used as a gun emplacement. The concrete buildings make the island look (from a distance) like a battleship. Although the island is now uninhabited much of this concrete super-structure remains largely intact and, on a foggy morning, you can quite believe there is a battleship lurking in the mist.
