A 5am rise saw us head for the Otter Haven at Kylerhea. After parking the car, a forest track leads to the viewing cabin. Unfortunately the cabin is some distance away from the waters edge. This meant that there was no chance of close-up photography even if we did spot any otters. We saw loads of seals playing around and basking on the rocks and the cabins binoculars came in handy to watch them. Cameron did manage to get some videos of the seals by stacking teleconvertors onto his 500mm though.
In the afternoon we headed for Glen Brittle and the Fairy Pools. These are a series of crystal clear, aqua pools along Coire na Creiche. A short walk of around a mile takes you to the start of the waterfalls and pools along the Allt Coir’ a Mhadaidh burn. We waited a while for the clouds to lift and the sun to reappear lighting up the Cuillin’s behind with early evening sunshine.
