A dramatic scientific video has revealed how the Scottish city was covered in a 0.6-mile-thick ice sheet, which lasted until around 15,000 years ago. The computer-enhanced visualisation was created by glaciologist Max Van Wyk of the University of Minnesota and design expert Kieran Duncan of the University of Dundee.
The airport of Barra, Scotland is the only scheduled airport in the world with a beach as runway. Only when the tides clear the seabed can pilots head for the Outer Hebrides Island in Scotland. Barra Airport is a short-runway airport situated in the wide shallow bay of Traigh Mhòr at the northern tip of the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The airport is unique, believed to be the only one in the world where scheduled flights use a tidal beach as the runway.
