Saturday 26th January comments: Over the last two weeks we’ve brought you lighthouse stories of the Isle of May, from the very first Beacon to the departure of the lighthouse keepers in 1989.
However during the season as well as visiting the island to see its spectacular wildlife you can also visit the main Stevenson Lighthouse. In partnership with the Northern Lighthouse Board, we open the lighthouse every weekend and then daily from 1st August. Its completely free to enter and you can check out the centre floor rooms with its great lighthouse interpretation or climb to the very top for fantastic views of the Firth of Forth and beyond.
The Isle of May has so many stories to tell and visiting this hidden gem is something you should do this summer. We are open from 1st April-30th September (weather dependent) and boats sail from both Anstruther (Fife) and North Berwick (Lothian).
