Looking west (downstream). Not the best of weather, but the river is not in spate. The footpath, on the right in this image, is easily followed, but rocky in places.
Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh - Fairy Pools
The crystal-clear waters of the Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh flow west through Coire na Creiche. The river flows over a rocky bed through narrow gaps and over several waterfalls. Below many of the falls are deep pools, which are known as 'Fairy Pools'. With a dramatic backdrop of the Cuillin mountains, and relatively easily accessed on foot from the Glen Brittle road, the site is a popular visiting place for Skye tourists.
