If you’re traveling to Scotland, you must go up North to the Isle of Skye and spend a few days exploring every corner of the island. The landscape is breathtaking because there are mountains in every direction, and the bright blue water makes it look almost Mediterranean. Plus, cute sheep will pass right in front of your vehicle.
We spent our time visiting a couple of castles with unique placements on the water, having a traditional Scottish lunch of cullen skink in the city of Portree, and hiking to the Fairy Pools in Glen Brittle. I discovered the Fairy Pools on Pinterest (Pinterest knows everything) and talked Brandon into finding the network of small to medium streams, waterfalls, and tranquil pools of clear water. It did not disappoint.
Fairy Pools of Scotland:
We spent hours following the streams and waterfalls, and could have spent even more time exploring if we had wanted to because we found a couple of trails that continue up some of the mountains in the area. Since it started to rain midway through our hike, we decided not to take that path; we turned around and walked with the water some more.
Glen Brittle is such a unique area. Mountains surround the valley and the clouds and fog that day made it look incredibly eery. I’d love to go back someday.
