Isle of Skye airfield


We are following national guidance regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. At present we have decided to keep our airstrips open in case they are required for emergency deliveries but this is an evolving situation which may change.  We would ask all users of our airstrips to adhere to site notices and follow National Guidance for health, travel and safe practice to limit the spread of the infection.

The airfield was constructed by the Royal Engineers in 1972. We maintain and operate it.
