this is fair pools @ glen brittle! simply awesome! ^^
we drove 55mins to fairy pools on 11.6.2017. ^^
open country & awesome views greeted us. 🙂
we were early & found parking.
when we returned to the carpark, the latecomers parked alongside the road. 🙂
weather was cold, maybe 12degC, felt colder!
a very pleasant walk i must say.
nice sky, great open country. would have been even better with the sun. can’t have everything. it was at least not raining, a short space/period of dry weather.
there was a little brook or stream to cross over. we stepped on the boulders. 🙂
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.
there is the taller fall & deeper pool at the start.
& 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. ^^
we drove further down the road to glenbrittle black beach at loch brittle.
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.
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. 🙂
