The Doon Hill Fairy Trail is associated with the 17th century Gaelic scholar
Reverend Robert Kirk ( 1644 - 1692 ), minister of Kirkton Church 1685 - 92, who investigated
local fairy lore and published "The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns and Fairies".
Kirk believed that Doon Hill was the gateway to the world of fairies.
