Helicopter landing near Castlebay

Hoping to visit soon. Would like to land around Castlebay and then explore area by foot. The hospital appears to have a helipad, would there be a flat space to land adjacent to it (leaving the helipad clear for emergency flights)Would the football pitch be a possibility? Who could we ask for permission?

Is asking the airport authorities on Barra worthwhile or even the tourist information office. Barra is a small place so people working in these places will know exactly who to ask?

Helicopters land in the grounds of the Isle of Barra Beach Hotel - the hotel is 2 miles outside Castlebay - I suggest that you contact the hotel for further information
