Tuesday 1st September comments: This weekend the Isle of May opens its doors in a very special way as we give people the opportunity to see what makes the mighty isle tick behind the scenes.

If you visit on either Saturday or Sunday, we’ll have staff on hand to show you the various buildings on the island from the Low Lighthouse to the oldest lighthouse in Scotland. We’ll also show you the engine rooms which produced the compressed air for the fog horns and even catch a glimpse of the current accommodation.

It is a real rare opportunity to see behind the scenes and will be well worth a visit. For visiting times and booking boats, please see websites below:
