Where to go for an adventure in Scotland
1) The Isle of May
The Isle of May is a wonderful nature reserve in the Firth of Forth that’s ideal for spotting sea birds such as puffins and mamals such as Atlantic grey seals. The best way to get over there is to book a boat trip with Anstruther Pleasure Cruises. The trips last around 4,5 to 5 hours giving you at least 2,5 hours on the island to enjoy the walks and scenery. The island is owned and maintained by Scottish Natural Heritage. They have rangers stationed there to give you important information about the island and its biodiversity. May and June are the best times to see breeding seabirds, and best booking later on in the day to see puffins, as they are usually out fishing during the day.
