Castlebay School primary pupils got a rare glimpse behind the scenes at Barra Airport earlier this week.

The visit by PG3-4 pupils saw them learn about how the weather—and tides—affect the airport’s operations. The trip was part of their weather topic and gave them a firsthand experience of the airport’s inner workings, including the weather recording equipment and the airport fire engine.
