Barra Airport - Friday 30th May

The best weather day was Friday and we circumnavigated the island on our bikes, stopping off to dash up a few hills en route.  We also stopped off at the airport for coffee and cakes, timing it so that we were there to see the flight from Glasgow arrive and take off.
