Great landscape with a beautiful view over plain fields. Even spotted two waterfalls on the other side. It's a really tranquill piece of nature which makes you feel calm. The surroundings are quite slippery, but with some good shoes it does not prove a problem at all. Take a walk around and enjoy the sights!

We visited the Faerie Glen at the end of a long day and did not expect much. But it ended up being such a wonderful surprise! It is easy to reach by car and fun to explore on foot - many hobbit-sized hills overlook miniature valleys and copses of trees, sheep graze freely, and the whole scene is just magical!

We walked up to the faerie glen as we were staying right near it. Once we got there we were not disappointed, the place is amazing. The view from the top of the castle is beautiful and we were super lucky to have had lovely weather.

The drive to reach the Faerie Glen was single track so the anticipation alone was good. Once you see the odd little hills and peaks it really makes you feel like you have found yourself somewhere really special. Good for a walk and photo opportunity, parking can be difficult though.I watched a local sheep farmer move his flock using his... More

The faerie Glen is a place i highly recommend visiting in the Isle of Skye. The drive to it has the most amazing mountain views. I have never seen anything like it in my life!! Unfortunately it was raining when we got there but we didn't let it ruin our experience! It just added hilarity to the day trying to... More

I know it's all myths and legends but it's easy to forget surrounded by the odd shaped mounds and the spooky fairy circle hidden behind the Fairy Castle. Beautiful views and an active climb for young and old - or just a casual stroll if you're not feeling energetic.

Charming and fun, walk around the picturesque hills, climb on them and frolic like children, enjoy the quiet and pastoral and shoot a lot of photos, a nice place and welcoming, you can enjoy this beauty, this reserve recommends two to three hours.

Isle of Skye is certainly not for the adventurous traveler. More of a weekend away from the hustle and bustle if you are local to the UK. We were too early in the season for any spring bloom, but the trip to Fairy Glen was the most scenic and interesting spot we saw while we were on island.

Wonderful, ethereal place! I had trouble finding it as there was no signage (maybe there was but it was only in Gaelic). I asked at the small shop on the side of the road and doubled back to take the road I had passed. I stopped on the side of the road after I came around a turn and was... More
