green lush hills looking over stone structures of the fairy glen

With all the visitors to the Isle of Skye Scotland, pretty much everything has been uncovered. However, there is one area a little less known by tourist, The Fairy Glen of Uig.  We discovered this magical place near the Village of Uig totally by accident.  As we were driving towards Uig to go on a Puffin and Seal adventure, we were ahead of schedule and had some time to explore.  Out came the map of the Isle of Skye and on it was a small little marker for a Fairy Glen.  In my book anything to do with folklore and history (read more here) requires more investigation.

We began navigating up a road which was fine in the beginning but soon turned a little more narrower.  It was a little scaring when cars came in the opposite direction, but totally doable.   You know you reached the area when you can not go any further.  The path up is fairly easy, rocky in spots but not a problem for most.  However, it is not accessible for wheelchair and I do not recommend for anyone with difficulty walking.

Feel the Magic at the Fairy Glen of Uig

You know the moment you have arrived at this Fairy Glen Scotland- looking down onto a lush green sanctuary of stone monumental type structures, a circle of some kind of possible worship area, and just the whole feeling of mystical fairy life. We discovered a bone of some type displayed on a rock structure.  Other stone structures that resembled crosses, possible worship monuments, miniature looking stone structures (possible fairy homes)?

Do You Believe in Fairies?

Sitting on the green grass we took our time at the Uigs Fairy Glen, absorbing in all the wonders that the Isle of Skye brings for your enjoyment and awareness.  It is fun to just imagine that fairies do exist and that we were fortunate enough to be able to be take a peak at their lives.

    What a fun discovery! It kind of reminds me of Stonehenge…we’re not really sure what it all means, but it must have been something important to the early people! Can’t wait to visit the Isle of Skye someday!

    Very nice looking place. I’m from the south coast of the UK, but I love islands. I badly need to visit the Scottish islands!
