Fairy Pools

Close to the Black Cuillin at Glenbrittle are the Fairy Pools, clear pools on the River Brittle. The Fairy Pools are a natural waterfall in Glen Brittle. The pools are a vivid aqua blue and are a popular place. The habitat of the Fairy Pools hosts a variety of animals, such as red deer, rabbits, and sheep. The area is also host to a large number of birds. Large flocks of crows, ravens, and gulls are present in the area, as well as such smaller birds as meadow pipits, turnstones, common ringed plovers, grey herons, dunlins, and curlews. The physical landscape is predominantly rocky, with some boggy areas here and there. The water in the area is typically cold, as the pools are fed by mountain streams. From being unnamed and virtually unrecognised as a tourist attraction, the Fairy Pools have become a soaringly popular location for walkers, with visitor numbers doubling between 2015 and 2019. It is about a 20 minute walk to the Fairy Pools from the Glen Brittle car park.
