Barra Eoligarry Airport by Matthew Ross

1 September 2005   Customer Rating : n/a

I agree with Geoffrey McNab's comments. Barra Airport offers the only scheduled passenger service to land on a beach - and what a beach! The tiny airport terminal is modern and efficient. The operator Highlands & Islands Airports Limited now has a no smoking policy in all its terminal buildings. No-one can truly call him/herself an aviation enthusiast without having sampled a Twin Otter beach landing on this lovely little Scottish island.


Barra Eoligarry Airport by Geoffrey McNab

28 February 2005

Tiny. But stunning location. Barra Aiport sits on the edge of a wide beach on the Scottish Island of Barra. Twice a day (once in winter) flights from Glasgow and Benbencula land on one of the three runways. But these are no ordinary tarmac runways. These are marked out on the sand of the beach - and only when the tide is out! The flights are the only British Airways flights where the timetable is marked "subject to tide". The terminal, a proper little toy-town terminal complete with tiny terminal, control tower, big burly firemen and one check-in desk. No compromise though on safety checks and procedures. Be sure to be here in good time to watch the incoming Twin Otter fly in and land on the beach. The tiny cafe sells lovely home made organic snacks and the whole experiences is a joy if you have only been used to the hustle and bustle and chaos of some large well known international terminals. If a glorious sunny day check-in good and early and take time to stroll three hundred yards up over the dunes to see the other stunning beach close to this amazing little airport.
