Barra Airport (EGPR)

Description

Barra Airport (http://www.hial.co.uk/barra-airport/) is a short-runway airport situated in the wide shallow bay of Traigh Mhr at the northern tip of the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The airport is unique, being the only one in the world where scheduled flights use a tidal beach as the runway. (From Wikipedia)
