Condo/Apartment
This affordable accommodation is a first floor flat that is cosy and homely. It commands spectacular views across the glen to the mountains and many waterfalls. Watch the buzzard soar past your window as it hunts its prey and the livestock grazing peacefully in the hills around you. It is set along from the mystical Fairy Glen renowned for its fantastical geology with hundreds of little conical hills, little lochs and miniature trees where the Fairys are said to inhabit. All this on your doorstep and more. The Fairy Glen is a remote area above the bay of Uig in the North end of the Isle of Skye.

Fantastic!
Just back from the most fantastic holiday staying at Fairy Nook, which is a lovely holiday home - proper "home from home " with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Fiona is the best host, very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Fairy Nook is located in the magical Fairy Glen which is within walking distance and makes for a lovely evening walk. Highly recommend 👌.

Quiet and scenic location
My wife, 7 year old and I stayed here for a week. The apartment is easy to find and the initial instructions are great. There was plenty of space in the apartment for us (be careful if you are 6 foot plus like me as there are low ceilings in places, but nothing that spoils the stay) You are about 3 minutes walk from Fairy Glen and a few minutes from Uig town centre/Uig Hotel is close by and is excellent for outdoor drinks overlooking the bay. The apartment has all the utensils/facilities required. There is a lovely back garden (mind the midges!) to sit and admire the incredible view. The view is breath-taking. It is also very quiet. A great place to stay!

Peace and tranquility
Perfect location with fantastic views and peace and tranquillity. I was there in August and the road to and from the property could get quite busy, but it was worth it once you got there.

Fairy nook cottage
I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay whilst on the Isle of skye. It is very homely and cosy with everything you need under one roof. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The fairy Glenn is on the doorstep offering plenty of photos and things to explore.

Honeymoon to Isle of Skye
Had the most fantastic time in Skye. Accommodation was perfect, very homely and spotlessly clean. Fiona made us very welcome with the little welcome gifts for us and our dog. Fairy Glen is a magical place and Fairy Nook equally as magical. Will certainly be back for another visit without a doubt.

Cosy and warm in freezing winter!
Where to start? We had a lovely stay at this self catering accommodation in a funny rugged landscape that could have been taken straight out of the Lord of the Rings! Everything we needed was at hand and our hosts who live just downstairs could not have been more helpful and kind. Quite possibly the most snow I have seen in the islands since I was about 10 years old. My kids were thrilled, our wee Renault was not! The roads are wee and "twisty turny", so if you're coming in winter, be prepared (as we clearly were not!) Thank you to Fiona and her obliging family who helped us through the snow to catch the ferry and make it back to the Western Isles! Don't worry I'm laughing now as I hope you are too. The accommodation is cosy, clean and tidy, with all the necessary utilities to hand. There's a couple of shops on the main road to purchase your starter groceries, but would suggest going to a larger supermarket as the choice is quite limited and pricey, however, glad it was there. Comfortable beds, nice towels and cute locally made soaps available. I would definitely come back, but would probably be in the summer when we could go exploring round all the wee nooks and crannies in the surrounding area. Thank you very much. Would recommend to families and couples.

Clean, comfortable, spectacular veiws!
The apartment was clean and just as shown on the photos. The veiw was spectacular in all weathers. The best part of the trip was having fairy glen on the door step. You could go out at any time and just explore without using the car. Every time we went out we found new tracks to explore. If you have kids with lots of energy, who love exploring and scrambling up rocks, this is an ideal base for your trip to Skye. The owners have added a little bit of fairy magic, if you like fairies, and some really useful things, like a box for your muddy boots. I recommend a trip to the Quiraing, Staffin beach and coral beach. Skye was beautiful. We took around 500 Photos!

Cozy and Bright--Just Perfect!
A lot of care has been put into Fairy Nook to fill it with the warmth and coziness of a happy home. I couldn't ask for more-It was an absolute dream. The rooms are bright and very comfortable with plenty of storage. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a wee fireplace for extra coziness. Not to mention, a wonderful backyard with your own gated entrance; a picnic table where you can listen to the birds, look at the stars or just watch the sheep and their shenanigans. The views from every window are incredible. Fairy Glen is literally at your doorstep and is nothing short of enchanting. I spent a week exploring and there was always something new to find. I even had WiFi and mobile reception in the house which is a wonder being so deep into the glen. I can't say enough about Fiona (the owner) and her family. You feel welcome right away and if you need anything, you'll be well taken care of. On my last day, as I was walking out of the glen with my many bags, Fiona saw that I was caught in the rain and offered to drive me. I only wish I could give more stars than 5-it was a perfect place to stay.

Map
About the neighbourhood
This part of Skye has a rugged beauty and has been used in many movie locations such as Stardust, The land that Time Forgot, MacBeth, 47 Ronin and many more.
Getting around
A car is essential for sightseeing around Skye as the local bus service is unfortunately quite infrequent and disjointed. There are however a few bus tours that run to most of the popular sights and might be of interest if you would like a break from driving on the single track roads.
