Re: British Fairies

I think Peak Cavern may be associated as there is a legend attached to it where someone passed through the cave and emerged in the fairy lands.

Maybe Doon Hill Aberfoyle for it's association with Robert Kirk. Kirk is essentially to faerie folklore what Lovecraft is to... well... horror! Highly influential yet not actually all that well known by the general public... but those in the know, know just how influential they are!
