THE WORLD FAMOUS FAIRY POOLS

Broadford Backpackers Hostel

ADVENTURE

FAIRY POOLS &
COIRE NA CREICHE

This exceptionally popular walk leads into typical Cuillin scenery without the need for any scrambling or other difficulties. The first section follows a beautiful crystal clear stream full of lovely pools and waterfalls – well worth a shorter walk in itself. This part of route has been heavily promoted and the paid car park is busy in high season. It’s best to either arrive early, or consider a quieter alternative at such times. The other Cuillin corries are equally magical, and much less visited.

Distance: 8 kms / 5 miles (for the longer hike, you can make it shorter if you want to)

Time: 45 min – 3.5 hours
Ascent: 360m (maximum)
Start Grid Ref: NG424258
