📸fairy pools, isle of skye, scotland.
if you're road-tripping across the isle of skye, you might probably prefer to aimlessly enjoy the picturesque landscapes, amd rightly so. although, i would highly recommend you guys to check out the magical fairy pools.❄✴ truly a 🦋 (beautiful spot) in the isle of skye!
are a set of crystal blue waters and series of waterfalls, located in the southern part of isle of skye, about a 40 minute scenic drive from portree. \\ we could only visit this first waterfall (also the highest of all) that marks the start of the many magical pools, since we faced heavy rainfall and strong wings soon after. to explore more pools, you simply need to follow the main path up beside the river.
i was curious about the history of this place, specially about the origin of its name, so i did try googling few bits here and there. sadly, there isn't much of evidence around this, so you're free to be as imaginative as you'd like to be. my guess is that this place must have been a secret hang out place for the lovely ladies (read: fairies) in ancient times! what do you think?
one scottish folklore however does mention that if you’re brave enough to take a dip in any of these (extremely) freezing pools, you will benefit from their magical healing powers. despite this, i couldn't even imagine dipping my feet inside, forget going for a swim!!!
would you dare doing it; do you have the guts to swim in these the magical yet chilly waters? go leave a comment. .
