The fairy pools (Isles of Skye): the most surprising fact to learn about the fairy pools is that they are a completely natural phenomenon. The cascading waterfalls which filter through naturally carved rocks have done so for thousands of years though the vivid blues and greens of the pools below remain shrouded in mystery. The pools have become a hugely popular destination with wild swimmers although wetsuits are advised, The turquoise water may look Caribbean, but it’s distinctly Scottish rarely rising above seven or eight degrees even in the summer.
The Caribbean or Outer Hebrids: Turquoise water, white powdery sand, those paradise looking beaches are not in the Caribbean islands, but can be found in the west and north of Scotland. Some of the best ones are located in the outer Hebrids. Those are the isles of Lewis and Harris.
