The Hurl Stone and Hurlestone Tower, Lilburn
The Hurl Stone is said to be a favourite haunt of the fairies.
According to an article by George Tate (1863), as explorers were passing along a passage and under the Hurl Stone, they heard fairy harp music and the pattering of tiny feet dancing, and shrill sweet voices chanting:

"Wind about and turn again,
And thrice around the Hurl Stane."

"Round about and wind again,
And thrice around the Hurl Stane."
