Wednesday 28th August comments: The weekend just gone was a huge success as we had the first of a double-header event focusing on the Isle of May’s history. We were joined by local experts (Peter Yeoman and Ron Morris) who led talks about their specialist subjects; the history of the Isle of May.
Peter focused on the early medieval period looking at Christianity at the site (which dates back to the 7th Century) as the Island is one of the most important in early religious history. In contrast Ron is an expert on the history of the island during the world wars and the place certainly saw some action during that period. Overall the two days were a huge success and we’ll be repeating next season so don’t miss out.
However we do have another event this weekend and its NOT to be missed!
Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September – Open Doors Weekend
Gain free access to ALL buildings normally under lock and key on the Isle of may. Visit all three lighthouses including Scotland oldest, the main Stevenson Lighthouse and the Low Light. Also check out the engine rooms which were the power-houses of the place. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
To book, please check out the usual boat operators to the island who are operating for these special events as we still have spaces on the boats. Get yourself here!
