Faerie Glen


On the West side of Trotternish at Balnacnoc (which means – the village or township in the hills) above Uig, is the Fairy Glen – a Quirang-like landslip in miniature.

A delightful miniature landscape of grassy, cone-shaped hills, the Fairy Glen (sometimes spelt Faerie) is a fascinating and otherworldly place to visit on a sunny summer’s day. It is one of the Isle of Skye’s most enchanting attractions, and slightly off the beaten track.

Skye has a long history involving the Fairies, most of which is related to Dunvegan Castle and their ‘Fairy Flag’.Although nowadays it’s a colourful local legends in Skye, the belief in the existence of fairies, or “the little people”, goes back to prehistoric times. Originally thought to be evil, fairies were believed to live deep within the heather of Fairy Glen (or Faerie Glen), located on the north end of the island on the Trotternish Peninsula.
