Faerie Glen, Isle of Skye
(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Take in the verdant scenery and enchanting mysticism of Faerie Glen. Climb up and down the slopes of the small hills and look out for any fairies. Legend has it that they have lived in the glen for centuries. Visit the Castle Ewen, a tower like feature, and discover stone designs made by visitors, or perhaps the fairies themselves. If you’re a confident hiker, head up the narrow path to the top of tower and be rewarded with views of the rolling countryside. Walking boots are recommended, as the glen can get muddy and slippery. Don’t forget to make a wish. Plan to visit Faerie Glen during your Isle of Skye vacation using our convenient Isle of Skye itinerary builder.

  • stunning views all round it one of the prettiest places in skye,keep a eye out for eagles .its a nice walk to the fairy pools but better on a sunny day . 
  • Faerie Glen is a wonderful place. Lots of green, many hills, stones, to a small lake. You don't have to shout, the fairies you kidnapping. Nor should we mention them. One can spend hours climbing rocks and climbing hills, or a few minutes walk and appreciating the scenery. Either way, is destination for Skye.

  • Lovely place consisting of a series of low hillocks of conical shape covered with that beautiful green grass. From the lookout point you can gaze out at nature around. We recommend proper footwear to "climb" an easy Hill to see this fairy world from above.
