Friday 17th June comments: This year is very special as the Isle of May is celebrating not one, but two birthdays (just like the queen). The island is celebrating its 60th anniversary as a National Nature Reserve (NNR) and 200 years since the construction of the main lighthouse. So to celebrate we are doing something very special on the island this summer…
For the first time, we are opening the doors of the islands iconic Stevenson Lighthouse to the public combined with an art exhibition by some of Scotland’s most renowned wildlife artists.
The lighthouse will be open at weekends only until 1st August and daily thereafter whilst the art exhibition features displays depicting scenes of the island and its wildlife by artists Derek Robertson, Keith Brockie and Darren Woodhead. Entry into the lighthouse and art exhibition is free but boat fares apply. For boat information including sailing times please check out the following websites:
