The Fairy Glen, near Uig
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.
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.
None to start. Nearest bus stop 1.5km at Uig Hotel (Bus 57 or Citylink 916 from Portree). .
There is no formal parking and the area becomes very busy; please park considerately without blocking any access tracks or passing places.
