Red stains above Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh
Red stains above Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh
Minerals leeching from beneath the peat leave a strong red stain down the rock and into Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh. The conical peak emerging from the mist beyond is Sgrr an Fheadain.
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.
