The image top is from the single lane road that runs south to Glenbrittle with the path to the Fairy Pools seen leading up into the mountains.

The second image is of parking for the Fairy Pools, some roadside and some up to the right. This can be an extremely busy attraction in summer. There have been more car parks added, some pay, some free.

The third image is of the good path up to the Fairy Pools, with the pools starting about half of a mile from the car park, and the top pool being over one mile from the car park.

The largest pools are in the middle, with one popular for diving, about 15 feet off rocks.

One of the Pools has an Underwater Arch, that has to be looked for.

The path continues on into the Cuillin Mountains from where you get great views of this famous rugged ridge.

The Pinnacle of Sgurr an Fheadain is in line with the path into the mountains. The gash on the front of the Pinnacle is known as Waterpipe Gully. The Pinnacle has been popular with rock climbers for a long time, with the first people to reach the top being Kelsall and Hallit in 1895.

There is a path around the bottom of the mountains for incredible views.
