Doon Hill Faerie Tree

Doon Hill is the home of the fairies. It is also the final resting place of a local minister, Robert Kirk, who lived in Aberfoyle in the 17th century. The minister would hold service and explain the virtues of God as well as describing the secret lives of the fairies.

Robert Kirk believed that Doon Hill was enchanted with fairies living among the local population. Such was Kirk’s commitment and belief in the fairies he published a book called The Secret Commonwealth where he describes Doon Hill as being the gateway to the land of the fairies.
