Traigh Mhor - Dog Friendly Beach in Barra, Western Isles


Traigh Mhor is the beach that provides the runway for Barra's airport.  Its English translation from the Gaelic is "Big Beach", just as well.

An orange windsock warns of planes' imminent arrival.

The machair behind the beach is also a riot of wild primroses in late spring and it's deceptively peaceful here, particularly at low tide.

Traigh Mhor is popular with cockle pickers too.
