The Fairy Pools (Lòin nan Sìthichean) on the Isle of Skye in Scotland has long been the locals best kept secret. However, with the prevalence of social media and the public’s unrelenting need for finding “Instagrammable” spots, it has since become one of Scotland’s must-see tourist attractions.
The Fairy Pools is also host to an amazingly popular hike through the Cuillin scenery. The Cuillin is a series of rocky mountains whose beauty has led it to be considered a National Scenic Area. This designation protects and preserves the Cuillin from being developed inappropriately and there are only 40 National Scenic Areas identified in all of Scotland.
The Fairy Pools is an excellent place to visit and it’s not only beautiful to look at but is open for wild swimming enthusiasts. However, it would be wise to take extra precautions since the water temperatures can be biting cold even during the summer!
