Fairy Pools, Isle Of Skye Reviews

  • Was chucking it down on the day i went. After crossing the overflowing stream to continue walk was severely unimpressed by what amounts to a few small waterfalls. I'm sure it's better when it's not raining but fat chance of that in Scotland. On arrival, just getting parked up was an issue. There's supposed to be no parking on any of the hill and passing spots, which just about everyone seemed to ignore completely. You either risk it, or pay the enterprising man in a van a Fiver to park up in his bit of land opposite. In short, don't waste your time.

  • If you are a tourist and want to arrive by car, walk alongside the Fairy Pools with hundreds of other tourists and then get in your car again to drive off to the next tourist attraction... Then this place is just the right thing to for you to visit. Surely, the water looked nice enough, but if you take a walk in either direction, you will see similar and even more beautiful waterfalls without all those people swarming it.

  • Amazing, such an enjoyable walk. Sturdy boots a requirement. Bring a waterproof just in case. Be aware there is no public toilets, the car park fills up quite quickly and the full walk is 1.5-2 hours.

  • The fairy pools are a fantastic place to visit. Can be very busy and parking is somewhat at a premium but the walk to the pools and back isn't as far as it looks. Views are stunning and the pools themselves are amazing. Would highly recommend this to anyone going a trip to Skye.

  • Great spot, family friendly (easy enough to access), but too much tourists. BRING YOU SWIMSUIT!!! You can swim in there if you ain't afraid of the cold. Water is 'freezing', as quotes by most people, but a Canadian it was only refreshing. There are MANY pools to choose from so just climb further upstream if the firsts pool you see are taken.
