Barra Airport

Voters commented as follows: "Lovely scenic approach. The whole flight from Glasgow to Barra is lovely seeing sea, land and islands for the whole hour!"

"Approaching and landing at Barra Airport is an experience that never gets old. Landing on the beach on the North side of the island is different every time. Depending on how much water is still on the beach at the time of landing. Flying towards Barra itself adds to the beauty and experience of the whole flight. Everyone should experience this flight at least once in their lives."

"It is unique being probably the only airport with a tidal beach as the airstrip. Flying in over the sea whatever the weather is awesome and ever changing. The view of the island, the colours of the sea and the bird life are out of this world. Should be on everyone's bucket list."
