The Fairy Glen, near Uig

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A bizarre and delightful miniature landscape of grassy, cone-shaped hills, the Fairy Glen (sometimes spelt Faerie Glen) is a fascinating and otherworldly place to visit on a sunny summer's day. A specific route is suggested but the exact route taken matters little - this is a place to explore.

Terrain

Mostly dry, grassy walking; reaching the top of Castle Ewen requires an awkward scramble step up. Paths are sometimes indistinct but the exact route taken when exploring the glen doesn't matter.

Public Transport

None to start. Nearest bus stop 1.5km at Uig Hotel (Bus 57 or Citylink 916 from Portree). . Traveline Scotland.

Start

Grass verges on the Balnaknock road just before the fairy glen. Map and directions.
