Fairy Glen is said to have evolved after a
Land Slip thousands of years back, leaving
these strange mounds everywhere, or was it the
Fairies that made it.
The Spirals in the ground are said to be
fairly recent, but may have been made much much
earlier, made by spiritual people by placing
small rocks around the Spiral. These rocks were
removed by locals to try and keep the area as
natural as possible.
Spirals evolved from the Neolithic period
about 2,500 BC, now most associated with Celtic
people from the UK and Ireland who used it a
lot in their Art and Jewelry.
People of the Neolithic Period worshiped the
Sun, Moon, and other natural elements that
affected their Harvest and Helath.
Spirals are claimed to symbolize the inner
and outer worlds, birth, death, and rebirth,
also unity of mental, physical, and spiritual
self, so standing in the middle of the Spirals
may do you good, wont do any harm.
Stone Stacking also began here a few years
back, starting off with some little ones here
and there, looking real interesting, then it
got out of control with Stone Stacks
everywhere, using large stones dug out the
ground, becoming dangerous to sheep and
children, and not very good looking.
The Stone Stacks were removed with them
being discouraged ever since.
The Rha Waterfalls are in the
centre of Uig, where the road north to Staffin
begins, at the Bridge over the River Rha.
The rest of the attractions in Uig are by
the Ferry Pier such as Bar / Restaurant with
views over the Pier, Brewery with a Shop, and
Uig Pottery with Skye themed pottery.
