A great walk to get you into the Cuillin scenery without the need for any scrambling or other difficulties. The first section follows a beautiful crystal clear stream full of lovely pools and waterfalls - well worth a shorter walk in itself. Clear undulating path with no difficulties and only short boggy sections. Ignore an early fork to the left and follow the path as it runs next to the stream. On a hot day, enjoy swimming in the beautiful fairy pools.

Stunning relatively easy to follow trail. It gets a little tougher to keep on the trail near the top of the fairy pools. On a windy day the path along the mountain side was a little lary but still beautiful. My tracker clocked the route at 13km rather than 7.4 mind. So bare that in mind. Definitely worth the extra distance though!

We did this trail on a very “Schottish Day” in March. It was raining all the time, sometimes showers with hail and bit windy, but that all didn’t matter. We put all our raingear on and we had a good time! The trail was safe enough to go on a hike in such weather; not to easy and not to hard. Just perfect for a less perfect day in March:)

Absolutely beautiful! The mountains around and the absurdly clear waters of the fairy pools make for a spectacular hike. Getting there can be a little complicated and potentially expensive, if you're going by public transit, but we're
