The Faroe Islands - Feldore McHugh

The main - in fact, only - airport in the Faroes. The approach was quite scary - we seemed to fly very close to mountains shrouded in clouds and fog. Fog in summer causes a lot of problems here; earlier in the week a football team from Montenegro got stuck in the airport for hours after fog closed in.

The original airport was actually built by the British army when they occupied the islands during World War 2 (after Denmark fell to the Germans).
