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... read more

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

I had googled faerie glen but seeing it in real life was much better - it truly is a special place - the whole family loved it, from the castle to the mounds, toadstools, stone circles and the cool waterfall - a definite must see especially for young families.

Enchanting and ethereal, this natural wonder is off the beaten track but despite its tucked away location it attracts way too many and the wrong 'sort' of tourists (the 'helter-skelter, whistle-stop minibus loads of checkoff-listers' who dash about this island from place to place in a breathless summer frenzy!) We have seen the detritus they create and, alas, the Fairy... More

We visited the Fairy Glen on a damp, but not raining, autumn afternoon. This was my 6 year olds very favorite spot on the Isle of Skye. My 7 year old loved it too. They loved zipping up and down the hills and all of the little well worn paths up and down the hill sides. Prior to coming to... More

A most enjoyable walk with stunning vistas all round. Don't expect too much from the so called 'fairy pools'.

Compared to other attractions situated on the Isle of Skye the Faerie Glen is completely underrated! The whole area has a magical feel to it and regardless of where you look or stand, you are surrounded by real wilderness and beauty. Make sure you wear comfortable footwear, as I guarantee you'll want to hike, climb and explore.

This place is situated about 2 miles outside Uig and is not sign posted so take directions before you go or use a Sat Nav as it is not easy to find. It is so unexpected and has a very unusual landscape. There is minimal parking in the area. There is a small walk involved which is suitable for most... More
