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.

On a hot day, enjoy swimming in the beautiful fairy pools.
