Know Before You Go
From Portree on the Isle of Skye, head North and then West towards the town of Carbost. Just before reaching the town, head South towards Glenbrittle. A small fairy pools sign can be seen at the crossroad. While driving towards Glenbrittle, the Fairy pools car park will be found on your right.
From the parking lot, called (and signed) Glumagan Na Sithichean, cross the public road to find the path labeled "Sligaghan," take the path in front of you. The return walk takes 2 hours without any places to protect from the sun, wind or rain. Several small river crossings are required (with large rocks to help) and ground can be slippery when wet. Proceed with caution.
