Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland
Fairy Glen is one of these amazingly peaceful places, which normally, you can only see in the big screen movies like The Lord Of The Rings or The Hobbit. In face this wonderful place almost in the middle of nowhere does look a bit like Shire from Lord Of The Ring Trilogy. The landscape is filled with little hillocks and narrow footpaths just like the village from the movie. The sky gracefully connects with the surrounding highlands on one side and on the other with located much lower peaceful sea in the harbour. From the highest spots of Fairy Glen, one can observe the beauty of it all – like in the fairy tales passed from generation to generation by our grandparents to our parents and by them eventually to us and so on, this landscape takes you away, really far into your dreams where nothing seems to matter apart from the piece and quiet surrounding you…
The Ultimate Freedom
All this beautiful scenery is filled with freely grazing sheep and rams. It almost feels like there is no such thing as boundaries, rules or duties. The piece and quiet surrounding you makes you feel different to anything you have ever experienced before.
We have noticed something slightly unnerving in this idyllic paradise. Although at a glance, it seems to be a perfect please to live in, after a while is starts to make you feel really lonely and unnatural. Skye is an island and so not many animals live here. All you can find is a bird here and there and sheep, sheep everywhere. There is absolutely no predators nor there is prey for them to feast on. It feels almost unnatural to look around and see absolutely no wildlife.
Overall the experience of visiting Fairy Glen is amazing. It’s heartwarming and unnerving at the same time. It is definitely something different to what you can see elsewhere so if you ever get a chance, do visit this magical place and experience it yourself – it is worth it!.
