The Fairy Glen is on the Western side of the
penninsula of Trotternish. It is at the village of
Balnacnoc which translated from Gaelic is the village in
the hills. It is above Uig. The Fairy Glen is much like
the Quirang but in miniature.
The Fairy Glen has a road which winds around the grassy
hills which have lochans (ponds) in between. The scene
looks like it is from another world.
Skye has a long history involving Fairies. This is
mostly connected with Dunvegan Castle. The famous Fairy
Flag resides there. The Fairy Glen itself has no legends
involving fairies. The location feels so unworldly that
it has been given the name.
