BRR and OBN
A proposal is being made by Argyll and Bute Council to operate scheduled services from their airport at Oban (OBN) to Barra (BRR). A 45-minute flight would be somewhat shorter than the sea-crossing. At present Oban is used for flights to Colonsay and Islay, Coll and Tiree. However, if services were also introduced to Glasgow then it would become something of a hub. There are plans, detailed in the Stornoway Gazette, to create a business park adjacent to the airport which is at North Connell, six miles north-east of Oban.
