The Isle of Barra recently came first in a ‘Most Beautiful Island’ competition. Located south of the Uist Barra is known for its relaxed attitude and its distinctive culture. This small island has beautiful white sand beaches and several fresh water lochs with plenty sea and brown trout. Visiting Barra is a must if you make it to the Outer Hebrides and it is serviced by air and sea, so make the time.
Barra Airport is famous for its beauty – beautiful beaches, machair and hills – and all in a small island. Barra is a special place to visit – especially memorable if you fly in because of the beach landing strip. Washed by the tide twice a day, Traigh Mhor beach is reputed to be the only beach runway in the world to handle scheduled airline services.
