Located on the Isle of Skye is Fairy Glen (sometimes spelt Faerie Glen), a unique and otherworldly, miniature landscape of grassy, cone-shaped hills with ponds in between.

Situated between the two small villages of Sheader and Balnacnoc on the Trotternish Penisula in the North end of the island; Fairy Glen is a popular tourist destination for hikers, and one of the top-rated attractions on the entire island.

Photographer Robert Lukeman took this beautiful shot at sunset, adding:

 

“During the day, this place is flooded with people. Around sunset, all the tour buses leave, and suddenly it’s completely empty and quiet. The only sounds you can hear are those from the local sheep.” [source]
