David Steel - Life on the Isle of May

26 January 2021

The Isle of May is a very special place. The unique island is home to thousands of seabirds (including over 40,000 pairs of Puffins) as well as other wildlife and is steeped in history.

As a National Nature Reserve it is a draw for scientists, photographers and nature lovers alike. NatureScot reserve manager David Steel spends eight months in residence each year.

Join us to hear what it’s like to live and work on this unique island before the new season gets underway!
