Climb aboard the May Princess and let us take
you on a most memorable trip to the Isle of May. The May Princess carries 100 passengers and is equipped with on-board snack bar and toilets and operates from 29th March until September 30th each year.
The Isle of May is a remarkable island which lies only 5 miles off the Fife coast and is an important National Nature Reserve owned and run by the Scottish Natural Heritage. Christened the jewel of the Forth by Anstruther Pleasure Cruises many years ago for good reason, this is truly a beautiful Island, peaceful with stunning views everywhere. Renowned for its wildlife and birds this small island also holds a few hidden gems that are really quite unique.
The Isle of May can lay claim to having Scotland's oldest Bird Observatory, which was founded in 1934 and manned by volunteers between March and November, the remains of a 12th Century Monastery built in memory of St Adrian martyred on the island by Norsemen in the year 875 and the oldest light house in Scotland dating back to 1636.
