Take in the verdant scenery and enchanting mysticism of Fairy 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. Make Fairy Glen a part of your Isle of Skye vacation plans using our Isle of Skye sightseeing planner.

Lovely little glade with a fairy ring set between a group of small hillocks. The walk from the official car park takes only a few minutes and goes through some interesting scenery. Don't follow the road, stay on the footpath when it crosses the road. The best photos can be taken from the smaller hillocks, no need to climb up the tallest. Lovely spot for a picnic or to just enjoy the tranquility. 😎👍
Really interesting area with lots of hilly mounts. Good for a quick hike around the mounts and maybe a walk in the small rocky spiral. If you do decide to climb to the top of the rock formation, you'll be awarded with great views of the area, but be aware that it is super narrow on top (3-5 feet wide) with steep drop offs so not for kids.
