Fairy Pools United Kingdom

The "Fairy Pools" are on the Isle of Skye in Scottland. On the spot you will find a lot of different waterfalls and very clear water.

Travel Information

Use post code IV47 8TA which will bring you along a narrow road to a car park suitable for a dozen or so vehicles. Further parking is available on the road however this quickly fills up so you should aim to visit at the start (recommended) or end of the day. Do not underestimate how busy this location becomes pretty much all year round.

The path to the Fairy Pools is directly opposite the car park and is a very obvious, hard gravel track which initially leads downhill then gradually uphill. It is not a particularly challenging walk but people with mobility issues may struggle so should seek further guideance / advice before attempting this.

There are several waterfalls along the route and you are advised to leave around 3-4 hours to photograph it well. If you leave the path then wellies are recommended as the land is very boggy (I went knee deep at one stage of the route). I would recommend sturdy wellies suitable for walking, or walking boots for the main paths for the extra support and protection these offer. It is around a 5km round trip between the car park and the main pools.
