A lovely place for kiddies and picnics. I went with my wife, the two of us were equally entertained despite the rain. Very quiet and mysterious. Didnt see any pixie folk but I did spot some very rare flora for any of you who like nature.

Most magical and fun place, rocks to climb and amazing little hill formations. We were lucky to see it on a cold yet sunny day, with a frozen lake. Beautiful!

This is a beautiful place to visit, but with slippery rocks on the path. Be sure to wear suitable shoes and water proved jacket. In Scotland, the weather changed within a blink. The waterfalls on the way are magnificent.

Really unusual landscape and great for kids' imaginations. Smaller legs might need a hand, particularly when it's been wet as you are wandering around hills and there aren't any paths. Don't expect a huge car park either. That sounds like 2 negatives but just watch outs - once you start looking for fairies you'll find that inner child!

We wouldn't have visited here if we hadn't been on a Rabbie's tour. Incredible formations and the "Immortality" pond. Definitely worth parking your vehicle and exploring all the unusual hills.

I'd never seen a stranger but more beautiful landscape in my years. It's easy to see how the Faerie Glen could inspire belief in the phantasmic and supernatural. It looks like something right out of a Dr. Seuss book. I kept waiting for the Faeries themselves to pop out of a bush.

Unfortunately the faeries were out today on a hike to the faerie pools but we still managed to catch their circles and visited their homes. The view from the top of the Castle Ewan was breathtaking. We also found a little faerie forest close by and got lost in a magical place. I'm really glad we went but seriously hope... More

This place was beautiful. Great, easy hike for my 5 and 11 year old boys. They had a lot of fun exploring this unique and magical place.

This is worth the drive to experience. Beware there isn't any parking to speak of and roads are narrow, most people are pulled over on the edge of the road. We climbed to the top ( and were nearly blown away) but it was worth it. Great views and made for stunning pics. Worth a visit!

Great landscape with a beautiful view over plain fields. Even spotted two waterfalls on the other side. It's a really tranquill piece of nature which makes you feel calm. The surroundings are quite slippery, but with some good shoes it does not prove a problem at all. Take a walk around and enjoy the sights!
