My sister and I did the Isle of May Photography Tour at the beginning of July 2013 with the Scottish Seabird Centre. We caught the 5am train in from Edinburgh where we were staying and it was definitely worth the trip. We saw thousands upon thousands of birds. We stopped by Bass Rock on the way which was totally awe inspiring with it's huge colony of gannets (watch your head though!). We took a zodiac ride there, good thing they gave us suits because everyone got soaked and it was a bumpy ride. The island itself is beautiful. We had to run through nesting terns that were dive bombing us, saw a few baby terns and cormorants, and at times had hundreds of puffins flying over us. The amount of birds we saw and how close we got to them was totally amazing. The tour guide took us to the best spots to see the birds and then just left people to their photography and bird watching, which we really appreciated. This trip was outstanding and we would both do it again in a heartbeat.
