Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / The Hebrides / Isle of Skye / Fairy Glen
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.

Absolutely stunning! Would love to go back just to see this again. So much to see and a wonderful hiking trail. Clean facilities and decent parking are available.

Out of all of Skye the Fairy Glen paid off. We had warm sunshine and the place was just beautiful. The hike not hard at all and not overly crowded.

Very beautiful landscape! All the little hills around are just beautiful and the big rock is amazing to climb up on to get a view around. It is quite steep and sometimes narrow. There's also a waterfall to see in the distance. The fairy circle is interesting, but not spectacular. There are also quite a few tourists around. We spent about 1h here, there is parking close by for fairly cheap.
Stay at the Uig hotel ,great little place to stay. Walk the road into the fairy glen. You go by sheep & cow farms , and great scenery of the harbour before dropping into the valley. Stayed here for a couple hours , climb the spire & the view is amazing. Weather changes FAST here so bring everything !
