STAR LETTER Inspired to go on a Scottish road trip adventure
Fairy Pools

I was so taken with Ella Foote’s Scottish road trip, as featured in the December 2018 issue of Outdoor Swimmer, that I persuaded my husband and son that they would like to accompany me on a Scottish road trip adventure of our own. We headed off for a week’s adventure during the first week of the Easter holidays. We started just north of Glasgow where we picked up our hired camper van, and travelled to the west coast before heading up and across to Skye. Unfortunately I was not able to stop and swim in every lovely looking stretch of water that we saw, but I managed a dip in the Atlantic, a swim in a loch, and a cold plunge in the same Fairy Pool Ella visited at the opening of her article. We camped very close to the Fairy Pools and we did a reconnaissance outing to the Pools as the sun went down, in order to suss out the best entry points for an early start the next day.
