Fairy Glen

Fairy Glen - SkyeThe Fairy Glen is a remarkable place, tucked away on the Isle of Skye. It is not an easy place to stumble across accidentally, but is well worth the effort of finding. Visitors will need to turn right, off the main road from Portree, just before entering Uig. The strangely shaped hillocks are impossible to miss, as the road Fairy Glen - Skyewinds its way through the centre of the Fairy Glen. There is a stone circle, and a beautiful stream.

The Fairy Glen was formed by the land being disrupted by a series of landslides (on a smaller scale than the huge landslips that formed the Storr and the Quiraing), with the results then smoothed by subsequent glaciation. The area covered is quite small and the road is always close by, so the exact route followed around the glen doesn't really matter.
