Time to visit

Puffin take off

The island supports the largest Puffin colony on east coast of UK 


The May Princess….the main boat bringing people to the island

Tuesday 12th April comments: Its been a grim few days on the island as a south-easterly weather front has been bringing heavy seas and rain to the island. As a result, our main visitor boats have been unable to sail but that’s all about to change.

Thankfully as it’s early in the season, this poor spell of weather is not affecting the birds and with promise of sunshine ahead, it’s time to start planning a visit. The May is known as the ‘Jewel of the Forth’ but its more like the hidden gem of the Forth as there is so much to explore on this impressive isle.


With free access (apart from boat fee) and up to three hours on the island, isn’t it time you visited? Supporting the largest Puffin colony on the east coast of the UK (only St.Kilda beats it), you’ll be impressed with the residents and this is just the tip of the iceberg. So why not come out and see what all the fuss is about?
