The Fairy Pools are located at 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 Cuillin 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 Fairy Pools are becoming increasingly popular thanks to being listed as a must see destination on TripAdvisor and other media outlets so when you make your visit, please be careful on the single track roads, follow the parking notices, the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and take your litter away with you. There is a WC at the nearby Glenbrittle Campsite along with some great hot chocolate and speciality coffee served up by the baristas at the Cuillin Coffee Co.
