Faerie Glen, Isle of Skye

4.7
#3 of 9 in Sightseeing in Isle of Skye
Nature / Park Landmark
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.

  • it looks like something out of one of a fairy tale, with dwarf like trees, mounds, and unusual rock formations. It's a great photo op and well worth a short side-trip.  more »
