Dunvegan Castle

Dunvegan Castle

Dunvegan Castle and its Famous Fairy Flag
Dunvegan is one of the oldest castles in Scotland and was home for many years to the MacLeods, an important Scottish clan. It is also home to the famous Fairy Flag. According to legend, this was a gift to the MacLeods from the fairies for defeating a naughty spirit. Visitors can see the flag on display!

The Fairy Pools

The Fairy Pools
These crystal clear freshwater pools are nestled in a hidden stream, which has lots of beautiful waterfalls, too. Visitors love to go swimming here, even though the water is freezing cold! You can just imagine the cheeky fairies giggling at the shivering swimmers! Isn’t the water a beautiful colour?

The Fairy Bridge

The Fairy Bridge
Close to Dunvegan Castle, this sweet little bridge is said to be where the fairy wife of the MacLeod clan chief said goodbye to him before she returned to Fairyland. This is when she gave him the Fairy Flag. She told him that it would protect him from danger whenever he waved it.

The Fairy Glen

The Fairy GlenThank you David Skinner
for the lovely photo.

The Fairy Glen
This is a large grassy meadow with lots and lots of cone-shaped grassy hills. At the bottom of the glen are stone circles, where you can make a wish to the fairies and leave a coin if you like. Some people even say there’s a fairy castle in the glen, made of rock. It’s a fun place to explore and the perfect place for a sunny picnic!
