‘Beautifully serene’ waterfall in the UK is a ‘must-visit’

A new study from the travel expert team at Khyam has uncovered the UK’s most impressive waterfalls.

Nick Roberts, owner and camping expert at Khyam, said: “There are so many hidden gems nestled in the UK countryside, and with spring and summer well on the way, the UK’s natural waterfalls are a great destination for anyone hoping to cool off after an afternoon hike.

“We hope this list helps spark some inspiration and encourage folks to head out and discover some of these natural wonders.”

Although the UK’s highest waterfall is Eas a’Chual Aluinn in Scotland, it didn’t make the top spot in the rankings.

However, a Scottish waterfall did top the list of watery wonders, many of which are managed by the National Trust.

The enchanting Fairy Pools on Scotland’s Isle of Skye took first place on the list and are one of the UK’s most beautiful natural wonders.

A spokesperson said: “Small in size but mighty in spirit, the spectacular Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye is an absolute must-visit, thanks to their almost enchanted, fairytale-like quality.

“Located at the foot of the Black Cuillins near the village of Carbost in Glenbrittle to the west of the island, the Pools are beautifully serene and offer a great place to take a dip for anyone daring enough to give wild swimming a go.”

Although the Fairy Pools are known as a serene paradise today, they were once the location of a bloody battle between two rival groups.

The water is icy so any wild swimmer are advised to bring a wetsuit and should take care when climbing on the rocks.

High Force Waterfall in County Durham grabbed second place on the list and is England’s most spectacular waterfall.

The breathtaking wonder is thought to have formed over the course of thousands of years, cutting through the rock.

Tourists can access the falls as part of a woodland walk in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty.
