Fairy Glen

Fairy Glen

Skye's Fairy Glen has become one of the must see locations, though that has its downside. It can be difficult to get any time there without it being swamped by tourists. It's also difficult to get good lighting there, so when I visited to find good lighting and few people wandering around, I was more than a little pleased. The prominent feature, Castle Ewen, is in fact not a castle at all but a natural rock formation. If you watch the film Stardust you will see this over Michelle Pfeiffer's shoulder in one scene. The fairy ring of stones in the foreground is certainly not natural. Sadly it's just been formed to promote the mythical nature of the place. Even without that, the Fairy Glen has a very odd feel. It's a landscape in miniature, and really has to be seen to be appreciated fully.
