Bad news but good…

Friday 2nd September comments: We’ve been watching the weather forecasts closely and today we have confirmed that the weekend event is cancelled. The winds have been in the east for several days but this weekend we are expecting those winds to increase which will prevent boats from sailing. As a result all visitor boats have cancelled this weekend meaning we do not have an Open Doors weekend to celebrate.

However…some good news… we are going to do it again but next weekend! So some of the islands buildings, normally with restrictions and no access will be opened up next weekend on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September. These include the impressive Stevenson lighthouse, Scotland’s oldest lighthouse the beacon, the engine rooms and the Low lighthouse tower. So get booking and visit next weekend!

Although its a big disappointment we will repeat the event next weekend and in the meantime we might be getting some migrant birds over the next few days so plenty to keep us going and as ever we’ll be bringing you the news. The winds are looking interesting because birds migrating south through northern Europe will be pushed over the North Sea and will reach the Isle of May as first landfall. Here are the latest maps of the wind…

As ever we’ll be keeping you posted…it’s never dull on the Isle of May…
