The Hebridean Whale Trail brings together over 30 of the most beautiful corners of Scotland's west coast. Places where whales, dolphins and wondrous creatures roam.
What is an airport doing on a whale watching trail I hear you ask? Well this airport is pretty special as your flight lands on the vast expanse of beach called An Tràigh Mhòr. This literally translates as ‘big beach’ which is a perfect descriptor. Washed by the tide twice a day, it is reputed to be the only beach runway in the world to handle scheduled airline services. This beach paradise is a perfect place take in the stunning seascapes around Barra.
