Beach Airport landing on Isle Of Barra, Scotland.


The Isle Of Barra is located on the west coast of Scotland in the Outer Hebrides. It’s is the ONLY place in the world where you land on the beach on a commercial flight.

Here are a few photos of this 55 minute flight on Loganair from Glasgow.

We were lucky enough to have seats right behind the pilot and co-pilot so had a very good view of the flight.

Once airborne we had some lovely views over the Hills and islands as we headed west to Barra.

Sitting right behind the pilots gave a good view of their flight operation.

The landing was great, no problems and was very smooth. On arrival you enter the small terminal and you are on Barra.

It’s a brilliant experience. Barra is a lovely place to visit so if you like flying and doing something different go for the weekend.
