Fairy Pools / Isle of Skye ***

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

The Fairy Pools are located near the village of Carbost in Glenbrittle on the Isle of Skye. Glenbrittle runs roughly south to north along the River Brittle and is overlooked by the Cuillin mountains. Many tributaries of the River Brittle run down from the Cuillins into the glen including a stream with waterfalls known as the Fairy Pools, a popular place for walkers. The Fairy Pools are beautiful rock pools of crystal clear spring water fed by a series of waterfalls.
The water of the Fairy Pools is perfect for any adventurous swimmers brave enough to enter the icy waters. It is not only the pools though that are worth a visit. The mountains surrounding the pools like a gigantic amphitheater are utterly magnificent. This landscape deserves at least 5 stars!
