Fairy Pools

Isle of Skye, Scotland

Leave it to the storytelling Scots to imbue an evocative natural landscape with a bit of enchantment. On blustery Isle of Skye, amid the backdrop of the Cuillin Mountains, and just a heartbeat from the Glen Brittle Forest, intrepid hikers will discover a collection of pristine ponds and waterfalls, knownas the Fairy Pools. Though you're unlikely to spot little people, you'll be amazed by the crystal clear water, ablaze in brilliant hues of teal, jade and cobalt. If you’re feeling brave, take an icy dip into one of the pools.
