Faerie Glen, Isle of Skye

(4.7/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • It's name is really suitable cause it really is like a fairy tale there.. We went in April and weather was clear. It is a short walk round the hills..  more »
  • A site as of tale, green more power not with beautiful rolling hills. You should go with a local guide and not venturing to conduct one's self because they are complicated roads and in addition it is not nothing indicated. You should carry footwear suitable for water and mud.

  • The Fairy Glen is located directly on a slope beside the Uig. After 1km, the landscape is changing rapidly. One feels transported really in a fairy tale world. Numerous small hills are covered with dense grass and result in a picturesque image. Park facilities along the Lake and 2 curves further. This is still an insider tip that's more tourists is to get lost but every year here. 1/2 hours can be spent here.
