The Fairy Pools are beautiful crystal-clear blue pools on the Brittle River in Scotland, located at the foot of the Black Cuillins near Glenbrittle. Scotland has always been popular among travelers thanks to the unique landscapes which offer great experiences in nature like hiking or trekking. The Fairy Pools make no exception as they represent a truly picturesque place in a pretty remote area. They entice visitors from all over the world to either enjoy the view or snap some photographs or “wild swim” for those brave enough to enter the cold water.
The walk to the pools uses the same route there and back and the complete return distance to the first main waterfall and pool is 2.4km. Most people however, will spend some time working their way up the river from the first waterfall exploring different pools. Once you reached the destination prepared to be awed and take your time to enjoy the view because it will really feel like you entered a fairytale land.
The pools can be visited all year round so there are no restrictions on when you can or cannot visit the site. Because the landscape has remained unchanged for years, your hike to the Fairy Pools will be quite memorable not only because the pools themselves are a rarity, but the untouched scenery is something of high value and truly worth enjoying and appreciating.
