A seventh son of a seventh son.
Clandestine meetings with sprites and fairies.
A 'man of the cloth' communing with nature spirits.
Murder, mystery and possible elfin abduction.
And a true life tale of 'publish and be damned'? Literally.
The past and present, fact and fable all combine to make Doon Hill a very, very special place.
If you are interested, do a search on
Doon Hill - Aberfoyle - Reverend Robert Kirk - The Secret Commonwealth -
....that should kill a few hours!
