Beautiful falls and pools that are set in a picturesque valley, surrounded by majestic mountains of luminous green. The path follows the stream, and in a couple of spaces there are a few rocks to hop, all well worth the journey.

My husband and I were in Scotland for our 20th anniversary and wanted a fairly easy hike. This fit the bill. It was beautiful even with the crowd. We were there in October so it was busy but not overwhelmingly so. I can imagine it would be packed in other months.

Pretty and easy, but crowded.

Unfortunately the Fairy Pools were a case of expectation vs reality. the photoshopped pictures online are not what you're likely to see. Photos on this page are accurate. Admittedly the water is a cool color. Crowded trail with people crawling all over the creek and obstructing views. --I think that's what no one tells you is that you have to climb down into the creek to get the best shots you see online.
It is scenic because it is Scotland, but is not in my top 5 hikes on the Isle of Skye.

The surrounding mountains are impossible to appreciate in photos. The hike itself is easy, but usually wet. Lots of tourists but early morning is the best time of day to go if you dress warm.

Easy but wear waterproof hiking boots. My 5 year old had no problem doing this. Gorgeous views!

A challenging hike for non- climbers as a fair bit of scrambling. Stunning view of the Cuillans at the top. Lovely wee loch to cool off on the way back down.

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
