Can you guess where this destination is from the clues below?
Here you will find a medieval castle and the world's only beach runway airport. Strangest part is that the beach is open to sunbathers and swimmers except when the windsock is flying (indicating that a scheduled flight arrival is imminent). At high tide, the runways are under water. Emergency flights occasionally operate at night, when the airport lines up vehicles to shine their headlights to illuminate the beach runway and reflective strips laid on the sand.
A favorite local dish here is a savory pudding containing sheep’s pluck, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach and simmered for about 3 hours.
