#4 of 18 in Nature in Isle of Skye
Relax in the natural beauty of the The Fairy Pools, Glen Brittle, Isle of Skye, so called because of their enchanting appearance. Walk around the area and admire the collection of clear-blue streams, waterfalls, and rock pools set amid the grandeur of the Cuillins. Brace yourself for a rather chilly swim or a paddle. If the weather permits a longer stay, bring along a picnic, but be sure to take your garbage away with you. Sensible footwear is recommended as the streams fill up quickly when it rains, making the surrounding area very wet and slippery. Go early for the best chance of securing one of the limited parking spaces.
