The Isle of May National Nature Reserve is located at the entrance to the Firth of Forth. Although under a mile long, it is home to a huge variety of wildlife. The reserve is renowned for its rich bird life, grey seal colony and reefs. It also has a fascinating religious and maritime history.
As well as a haven for wildlife the island is home to three lighthouses including the impressive Stevenson lighthouse and the 'low light' which is now Scotland's oldest bird observatory, founded in 1935.
NatureScot's reserve manager, David Steel and his team welcome visitors on arrival and their brilliant blog details the seasonal highlights and news from the island.
