Isle of May

Last Sunday I went to the Isle of May, a small island in the Forth estuary off the coast of Anstruther. We were so lucky to have a lovely, sunny and dry day-the only such day in the last 6 weeks. The Isle of May is known for its birdlife. It is teeming with birds, but the birds I really wanted to see were puffins. And I certainly got to see puffins:


As well as Razorbills

 Terns
 and gulls
 The lighthouse
 the landscape
 and The May Princess

Day 2

These photos were taken near Loch Ness. I walked through a wonderful birch wood, all covered in moss. It was quite magical.

Then I did a hill walk-it was much longer than I had anticipated. It took me 5 hours, up and back!
But the view was splendid:
