Located near the village of Carbost on the Isle of Skye, visitors can embark on a stunning walk from Glen Brittle towards the Fairy Pools.
The Fairy Pools is a popular hotspot for photographers and walkers, and is one of the most magical places in Scotland. The water in the River Brittle and the pools is so clear, perfect for any adventurous swimmers who dare themselves to enter the icy waters. It is advised that swimmers bring a wetsuit for this activity, as the mountain springs can be bracing.
Visitors can make the 2.4km walk to the pools by from the car park up the rising gravel path towards the Black Cuillins, the water source for the river Brittle. Along the route bordered with grass, heather, peat and rocks, eventually you can stop and admire the largest waterfall that marks the location of the Fairy Pools, or walk further up the path and explore some of the smaller pools that lie ahead.
