Yes - one of them, anyway. But so do Barra, Vatersay, Harris, Berneray and other islands. Welcome to Paradise!

Here are some pics from above that may be helpful ,although you might be best working it out from your flight path.

I had thought that the most likely was Coll (probably because I love the place) but am not really convinced of this, you will be best placed to kmow which of the isles it is.

As Dippyem says it will depend on what flight path your plane is allocated on the day.

There are 8 "tracks" across the Pond roughly 10 miles apart starting with Alpha to the south and Hotel to the north, so unless you know the profile of each island it will be hard to tell.

I'm never that lucky any time I fly out or in, must just be me but we are usually in clouds before the gear is up!

There are flights from Glasgow to many of the Hebridean islands operated by Loganair (as a franchise partner with FlyBe) - see www.flybe.com or www.loganair.co.uk

The flight from Glasgow to the Isle of Barra is particularly famous, as the plane has to take off / land on the beach at Barra. The Isle of Barra is a delightful island and well worth a visit.
