Pagan Eye: Fairy Hill at the Museum of Witchcraft

This year's exhibition at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, in Boscastle, is called Betwixt and Between. It is inspired by Isobel Gowdie, the Witch of Auldearn, whose confessions to witchcraft in the 17th century included feasting beneath the Downie Hill with the King and Queen of the Fairies. This photo shows an artist's impression of that feast hall - one of the exhibits on display.

I am currently in Boscastle for the museum's annual conference, which is also on the theme of Isobel Gowdie as well as folkloric witchcraft, spells of transformation and fairy beliefs. I'll be blogging about that more in future, but for now here is a picture I took yesterday.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
