Fidra is an uninhabited island of the Firth off Forth, in the east of the Scotland. Its name could be of origin norrois E and refer to the multitude of feathers of birds which one finds on the spot. The island is today a reserve of the Royal Society for the Protection off Birds.
One finds in the south-east of Fidra the town of North Berwick, in south-west, Gullane, and, in the south, the natural reserve of Yellowcraigs as well as the village of Dirleton.
The island is accessible thanks to the presence from a primitive pier on its Western part. An automated headlight is drawn up there and of the cameras allow the visitors of Scottish Seabird Center of North Berwick to observe Fidra in real-time.
It is said that Robert Louis Stevenson had been based on the form of Fidra to establish its chart of the Île to the Treasury. A proof being able to support this thesis is that it frequently came on the beaches of what today is Yellowcraigs.
