Scottish culture is filled with nature based Celtic myths and legends that tell of magical beings living under hills and waters filled with large and small beasts. The Fairy Pools near Carbost, Scotland encapsulate that sense of magic in their beautiful blue waters.
The series of small waterfalls that make up the so-called Fairy Pools are located near the village of Carbost on the Isle of Skye and accessible only by a foot hike through the Glen Brittle forest. These Fairy-Pools are some of the most pristine swimming holes in the entire world. On a sunny day, the turquoise waters of the natural pools are so clear, you can clearly see each moss-covered stone at the bottom.
I hope this review of Isle of Skye, Scotland will encourage you to visit soon!
