Oh well, even without the hint I recognized it immediately as one of the Outer Hebrides, in fact the northern part of Barra.
The hint links to Barra Eoligarry Airport (EGPR), a.f.a.i.k. the only Beach airport in the world, situated in the Traigh Mhòr bay, at the bottom of the picture.

North end of the island of Barra, Scotland which is located at 56 59N 7 28W. The curved beach at the bottom of the picture is the airfield for the island, with runways on the sand – underwater at high tide.
Thanks for the hint – it made the search very easy!

The “hint” was instrumental in finding the spot, btw …

Do we have a Scottish theme? It is the runway on the beach on the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides. It was your hint that gave it to me.
