fairy pools is sprawling, no really large falls, but pleasant place to just stroll along & even picnic, though we did not want to sit down & block the views & vantage points of others & photo shoots.

& the natural arch further up.

on the way down we found a quiet spot, sat down on the boulders and drank some hot coffee from our useful hot flask tumbler, and took some snicker bar & shortcakes.

it was a really fun morning walk & we were blessed (not long) with dry weather. we saw a sign “oyster shed” earlier on our way to fair pools, so we went to look for and found it on our way back. ^^

glenbrittle beach 

we drove further down the road to glenbrittle black beach at loch brittle.

glenbrittle beach 

a short 10mins drive. we parked & a 1/2hr walk.

wife had a slight accident & cut her fingers opening the swing gates to keep out the livestock.

glenbrittle beach 

it’s a dark sandy beach situated at the head of Loch Brittle and at the base of the Cuillin, Loch Brittle Beach is a truly Scottish destination.

the ground was littered with loads of sheep droppings.

a drizzle started, so we turned around & walked back to the car, and drove to the oyster shed for a rest stop & something to eat. 🙂
