Isle of May
From May to October, the 'May Princess' sails from Anstruther Harbour to the Isle of May. The journey time is 45 minutes to 1 hour and includes a cruise around the island to catch sight of the colony of grey seals. On most trips you can spend 2 to 3 hours exploring the abundance of wildlife such as kittiwakes, razorbills, guillemots and puffins. It is also possible to visit the remains of the 12th century monastery on the island.
