  • Address: Isle of Skye, Scotland
The Faerie Glen on the Isle of Skye in northern Scotland is a bizarre miniature landscape with grassy, cone-shaped hills, ponds, and moss-covered trees. It is a beautiful natural area to walk through, especially during the summer. Legends dating back to prehistoric times tell tales about the existence of fairies that live in this area. The fairies were once believed to have evil overtones and live in beehive houses deep in the heather in the area called the Faerie Glen. 

Some residents of the area still believe in the existence of fairies. However, not everyone agrees on what they wear and how they live. Green seems to be the most widely accepted color of clothing for the fairies, although some accounts from medieval times describe them as wearing gold and silver clothing made of gossamer and silk. The queen of the fairies is described as wearing white linen and pearls in her hair. Visitors are advised not to go to spy on the fairies, and that those who doubt will be ignored.

Practical Info

The Faerie Glen is located at the northern end of the Isle of Skye near the town of Uig.
