From Scotland.com: Suspended in turbulent seas with cliffs that plunge into dangerous waters, many islands have an air of mystery, but on the Isle of Skye belief in the existence of fairy inhabitants or “little people” dates back to prehistoric times. Once believed to have evil
overtones, Scotland’s fairies are believed to live in “beehive” houses (photo above left) buried deep in the heather in The Fairy Glen on the north end of the island near Uig. The Fairy Glen cannot be found on a map, but if you’re visiting Scotland and you go to the Isle of Skye and you’re lucky, one of the island’s human residents might tell you a story or walk with you through the wild landscape. Just be sure you wear any color but green!
