Doon Hill Fairy Knowe is a modest summit near Aberfoyle.
Forest Enterprise have marked out a short walk through mixed oak and coniferous woodland with toadstool signposts.
At the summit of the knowe, there is a pine tree which is said to contain the spirit of the Reverend Robert Kirk. In 1691, he was parish minister in Aberfoyle and wrote a book called ' The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Faunes and Fairies '. A year after the book was published, Kirk collapsed and died when walking on Doon Hill.
After his funeral, he appeared to relatives to tell them that he was in fairyland and gave them instructions for his release. However, his wishes were not carried out and many believe his spirit may still be contained in the old scots pine on Doon Hill.
They say if you tie a message to the Scots pine tree the fairies will come and read it and make your wish come true.
