Social media exposure has led to first part of this walk - to the Fairy Pools - becoming extremely popular in recent years. It follows a beautiful crystal clear burn with many beautiful pools and waterfalls. The paid car park is busy in high season; it's best to either arrive early, or consider a quieter alternative at the busiest times when the pools are overcrowded. On Walkhighlands, we describe a longer walk that leads away from the crowds to make a memorable circuit around this fine Cuillin coire.
Clear path with bridges to pools then undulating hill paths with no difficulties.
Bus from Portree (seasonal check Stagecoach website).
