After protracted and lengthy negotiations with Argyll & Bute Council
Brendan and Allison Walsh have successfully taken over the operation of Glenforsa Airfield. The now expertly maintained 730 meter grass strip alongside the beach at Glenforsa is both a vital operational resource for Mull and the surrounding islands, and a popular destination for aviators and enthusiasts.

Brendan and Allison, both private pilots, swapped successful careers running The Intrepid Aviation Company (created to maintain and showcase the vintage aircraft collection belonging to Pink Floyd's David Gilmour) in order to renovate and re-open The Glenforsa Hotel in 2003.

They have succeeded in transforming a once woefully neglected site into an unique gem of a hotel, with a fantastically stocked bar serving freshly prepared food all day, 14 quiet comfortable bedrooms and a renowned restaurant serving the best local produce and seafood the Island has to offer, all with magnificent views across the airfield and beach to the Sound of Mull beyond.

What the Glenforsa Hotel and Airfield now offer is a unique experience for pilots where everything from first PPR contact to single malt nightcap is seamlessly managed by the same team and designed expressly with aviators in mind.

Before the recent period of lacklustre management The Glenforsa Airfield annual fly in was a legendary high point in the private aviation calendar with previous events attracting up to 135 aircraft.

The Glenforsa Team of 2015 will bring their extensive experience running the North Weald and Orsett air shows and are hoping and put the Glenforsa Fly in back on the map as an unmissable event for private pilots from the UK and beyond.
