Story of Doon Hill.

The 19th century was a funny time in Aberfoyle when there were many tales told of fairies living in the wooded hills nearby.

For the Rev Robert Kirk, an interest in the magical life of the little creatures had an unfortunate end, apparently. The minister at Kirkton Church from 1685 to 1692 wrote a book, The Secret Commonwealth Of Elves, Fauns And Fairies, but his revelations incurred the wrath of the sprites and he was captured on Doon Hill.

The minister was taken to the land of the fairies. Some say his body was placed inside a tree on top of the hill. A substitute body was placed on the ground by the fairies, locals mistook it for the minister and buried it in the nearby cemetery.
