The May Island Main light……in Korea

 I was recent sent these photos by a colleague taken when on holiday in Korea. he took a boat trip over to an island only to find a “lighthouses from around the world” exhibit there.

 And there in amongst the lighthouses from around the world was a model of the Main light from the Isle of May.

 Interestingly the model shows the Main light as it was first built with lots of castlations along the roof top before they were removed.  If you want to get a close look at the Main light then it will be open on 1st and 2nd September as part of our Isle of May lighthouse weekend. But book early as boat tickets are going fast.

The island in Korea even had a passing resemblance to the May though their boats are bigger than the May Princess, I bet that their harbour isn’t as difficult to navigate as ours!
