Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye

4.5
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.
