As you might have noticed earlier this month I visited the Isle of Skye with my family for a quiet and relaxing break. It as great to just get out in the fresh air, the weather was kind to us.. Bar the occasional sprinkling of rain but hey.. what can you expect in Scotland? So during our visit one of the places the absolutely everyone I'd spoken to had recommended to me was the Fairy Pools, they are probably the most 'touristy' attraction on the Island but we actually managed to time it perfectly by arrived at 9:30am as we had a packed day planned full of adventure.
Surprisingly the sun was shining and it was already very warm even though it was so early in the day and we were really lucky in the fact the sun was beaming down on the clear blue water and it made the appropriately named 'Fairy Pools' feel so magical. From the nearby carpark the walk along the fairy pools is a around 1 mile but you could easily spend an entire day in this location if you came prepared with snacks and drinks. There are huge boulders around the landscape that are the aftermath of the Ice Age and the clearly marked path even has stepping stones across small rivers to help you cross.
During my trip to the Isle of Skye I completely fell in love with this beautiful part of the world. It is so idyllic and peaceful and there is so much time to appreciate the mountainous landscape. The Fairy Pools were my favourite part of the entire Island. The water is so fresh and clear blue that you just want to dive in, but trust me it's freezing cold.
