I think every child that went to Kinson School or surrounding Schools will at some stage in their School years have to-do a project on the Infamous Isaac and the grave in St.Andrews, that of a smuggler Robert Trottman who was killed on the shores in 1765 either by the excise men or a stray smuggler's bullet ,and apparently according to his headstone innocent! It reads thus :-
