A ferry service to the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth will be welcoming those keen to go walking there from next month.

Scottish National Heritage has revealed the ferry service from Anstruther in Fife will resume on April 1st, which will allow walkers to visit the island nature reserve, which is home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds and two staff members.

Reserve manager David Pickett said: "I know that I am a bit biased but I think that visiting the Isle of May is one of the best wildlife spectacles in Scotland and an island full of seabirds can make a trip of a lifetime."

As well as birds like puffins, terns and shags, the island is home to a grey seal colony.

Scotland has hundreds of islands varying in size from small uninhabited rocky islets to larger landmasses like Harris, Mull and Skye.

Last year, Ramblers Scotland called for Harris to be made into a national park.
