Licensed last month, it is a super strip. Lools like fairly limited parking on the ramp though - the school run flight from Oban (cool school!) came in just after I left.
You get PPR from Oban and pay them the landing fee in advance, £15.
With permission, I think they are fairly flexible about arrival / departure times.
There are a lot of geese around at this time of year (Sep) and there were some on the runway so there is a part air/ground operator and bird scarer. There are toilet and coffee facilities at the terminal if he is expecting you (I was early).
The strip is not near 'civilisation' and I did not even turn on my mobile, I do not think there is reception on any network, so unless you made sure there was someone there you would not be able to call a taxi.
I took my folding bicycle and had an excellent lunch in the Coll Hotel at Arinagour. Apparently you can hire bicycles in Arinagour.
Everyone was extremely friendly, as the islands always are. Interesting landscape and amazing beaches.
I flew direct from Carlisle for the day, there is no fuel so you will have to plan carefully.
This is the AIS link for the runway and airfield chart.
