This area is near Uig and can be tricky to find but it's worth searching for! Our kids loved hiking to the top of one of the columns, and checking out the little caves. Must see!

The Fairy Glen is a nice place to visit. If one would say that dwarfs, elves and alikes would live here, you would believe it. Charming place, not big, not crowdy, but totally relaxing.

This was the highlight of our time on the Isle of Skye. A must do - wish we had had a little more time to spend there.

This is such a strange and beautiful place. it is hard to describe ,other than Faerie Glen. All kinds of mounds and mountains and rocks to climb. Some can be a little scary, so if you have little ones be careful. So worth the trip,...More

This little spot would be easy to overlook and what a shame that would be. Very popular place for your kids to explore.

This place is both weird and wonderful, a little glen of emerald green grassy hillocks and winding little creeks. From the top of the 'castle' you can see rather large waterfalls across the opposing valley. A fun diversion for an hour or so, probably not...More

Myself and couple of friends visited the Faerie Glen this evening. It was a beautiful evening just perfect for a relaxed wander around exploring the quaint fairy circles and lush green hills. Views are stunning, would recommend a visit as well worth it.

This is a small and pretty place, but spoilt by the odd stone spirals, which include one that is supposedly a sculpture, and as a result feels manufactured for tourists. Plenty of tour groups arriving and departing while we were there and impossible to take...More

It's quite far up and in but there is parking on the road right by it so I'd recommend that.

Yes except the climb to the 'castle'. The slopes will be exciting and he/she will be able to climb to the summit of some hillocks happily. Beware rocks, and as this is open land, there may be sheep and deer poo about ..
