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 beautiful spot on a sunny summer's day.


Mostly dry, grassy walking. Paths are faint but the exact route taken when exploring the glen doesn't matter.

Public Transport

No direct public transport. Nearest bus stop 1.5km at Uig Hotel (Bus 57 or Citylink 916 from Portree).


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