Anchored on the edge of the Firth of Forth, the Isle of May is a magical mix of seabirds, seals and smugglers. In early summer the cliffs of the island are filled with nesting seabirds. You can witness this noisy spectacle from the clifftop path. The isle is also home to the comical and colourful puffin. The island is designated as a European Special Protection Area for breeding seabirds and a Special Area of Conservation to protect its seals and the rocky underwater reefs around the island. The best months for seeing the breeding seabirds are June and July.

In addition to wildlife, the island also has a rich cultural heritage, known for centuries as a site of pilgrimage and as the site of Scotland’s first lighthouse, built in 1636. The island was the site of one of the earliest Christian churches in Scotland, founded in the 9th century and built into an unusual mass-burial mound that probably dates from prehistoric times. Although radiocarbon dating of bones reveal them to date from the 7th century to the 10th century, remains of Bronze Age funeral urns suggest that the mound may be older.

The importance of the May is amplified by the long history of scientific study of seabirds and seals on the island. This began when the bird observatory was opened on the island in 1934, while studies of sea mammals date back to 1982. The knowledge from these long-term studies is invaluable today in guiding our conservation priorities. Visit the Isle of May over the summer and you will almost certainly see grey seals. About a hundred or so stay all year round, lounging on the rocky shores at the north of the island, or bobbing inquisitively in the sea just offshore as the boats go by.
