How To Get To Fairy Pools

The pools are situated on the southeast of Glen Brittle Forest, just two miles before the beach. Since the area is pretty remote, it is advised to approach it by a personal vehicle. Once you have parked your car near the circuit, prepare yourself for some long, nice walk because the pools, indeed, seems as if they would come out of a fairytale – gorgeous and tempting. Being the part of stream that runs off of the Cuillin Mountains, the water is crystal clear forming several nice waterfalls and colorful pools.

However, take into account that the water of the pools is not as warm as it might seem. For sure, you can go for a swim and it is even advisable to do so but certainly check the water temperature prior jumping in the water in your bikini – it just might be too cold for those who have not hardened their bodies for such low temperatures.
