Faerie glen!

We didn't know this place existed the last time we went to Skye, we didn't realise how close it was to Uig either. Lovely afternoon stop for a walk and explore.

This place was especially fun with kids who went wild climbing and exploring. Great small side trip for a morning or afternoon... not on a rainy day.

We did not know about this place until our WOW Scotland Tour brought us here. It is a beautiful sight in any weather. Please be respectful of the sheep as they are someone's property and do not leave your garbage behind.

A very beautiful spot to visit, the terrain is breathtakingly beautiful and resembles something from a fairytale. Please respect this place when you visit, tourists are damaging this beautiful landscape by climbing up the little hills, the road goes through the middle of it so try to avoid climbing all over the hills and damaging it!

A wonderful place but please leave nothing but footsteps, take nothing but photos. The 'offerings' for the fairies are just litter by another name. The oriental style stone towers are out of place in Scotland and dangerous when they fall. Come and wander in this magical, atmospheric landscape but don't spoil its natural beauty.

This is definitely one of my top three places to see in Skye. It is so green and nice. Not a lot of walking/climbing involved. Apply insect repellent generously!

Faerie Glen is tucked away and it can be seemingly hard to find, but once you do it is a gem of a place to walk around and enjoy the ambiance, sheep, deep greens of the foliage and uniqueness of the landscape. It is not completely natural... people have placed stones in patterns and the like but it sort of... More

Well worth a visit! You could spend an hour or two here on a nice day (we spent 30-40 as it was raining), perfect for a picnic. It is really pretty and near Ewen castle. The main fun part is climbing all the mounds around the area. Parking is found about 400m before the glen, please park there to avoid... More

Absolutely amazing….perfect for solos, couples and families who love to hike. Parking can be tricky as there is no designated parking lot… so it is catch as catch can. If it is rainy, bring boots and rain jacket. Bring your camera and be prepared to be amazed.
