The Fairy Pools car park could accommodate 137 cars and approximately 20 mini-buses and campervans in addition to the current spaces, if plans submitted to the Highland Council are granted planning permission.

The existing 30 space car park, which is located along an existing forestry road, is consistently overcrowded and often sees visitors to the Pools parking on the verge of the single track roads.  

Last year, the popular beauty spot attracted over 108,000 visitors.  

The application proposal states that a new lower access to the car park would be created.  Improved road crossing and mitigation planning would also be provided, as well as places for picnics, interpretation and compost toilets.
