About Doon Hill
Climb to the top of Doon Hill to find a solitary Scots pine amongst the oaks. It's thought to mark the entrance to a Fairy Queen's underground palace…
Moderate slopes on a variety of mostly wide, firm surfaces. The top of Doon Hill includes steps and a short steep narrow section that can be uneven and muddy.
This trail begins by crossing the old stone bridge over the River Forth, then passes an ancient kirk and the cemetery where Reverend Kirk is buried. Once in the forest, the route winds up to the top of Doon Hill. Enjoy the view over Aberfoyle and the hills beyond as you catch your breath.
Look out for the big Scots pine on the summit. Some say it’s a fairy tree and a great place to make a wish – or you could try running around it seven times, which is said to make the fairies actually appear!
How to get there:
The car park is just off the main street running through Aberfoyle.
