Thursday 5th March comments: The build up to the new season continues unabated as the Isle of May team gradually stir into life ready for another action packed summer on the ‘Jewel of the Forth’. Over the last few weeks a lot of planning has gone into the new season from organising jetty repairs to purchasing of toilet rolls!
It takes a lot to sort, organise and transport everything over to the May as at the height of the summer up to twenty people can be living and working on the island. Simple pleasures in life such as running water and electricity are very valuable commodities on the island whilst food (and beer!) stocks have to be fully stocked in case of poor weather.
So the job continues behind the scenes to get the island ready for the new season as we have an island to be ready for visitors; both feathered and human as we open our doors on the 1st April. Are you ready?
