The Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick is to host the inaugural Puffin Fest between May 16-26.

The celebration of the much-loved seabird will include Puffin Express boat trips, a Puffin Trail through the centre, arts, crafts and storytelling activities, picnics and parties.

The islands of the Firth of Forth, including Craigleith, Fidra and the Isle of May, are home to around 90,000 puffins and the birds are clearing out their burrows ready for the new breeding season.

Tom Brock OBE, the centre’s chief executive, said: “Puffins are one of the world’s favourite and most distinctive animals.

“Puffin Fest will also be an opportunity for people to appreciate and understand the importance of looking after Scotland’s rich variety of seabirds and marine life - and how they can help.”

Details of the Puffin Fest will be announced soon.
