From an archaeological point of view Doon Hill is still very much a blank sheet, but from its prominant and strategic position and from its shape it is very likely to conceal an ancient monument.
As far as I'm aware there has never been any kind of field study carried out to ascertain it's origins. However, walk around and up to it's summit and the hand of man can be clearly felt.

Folklore

Add folklore Add folklore
There is enough folklore here to fill many pages or make a Hollywood movie.
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.
