Athodel was an island of the Western Isles to the north of Britain, formerly under the sway of a famous Scotch magician. Indeed it may still be, as the island is no longer to be found and so its exact condition cannot be ascertained. It may be lost, sunk or have been rendered invisible, perhaps to make it more secure. It is impossible to say.

Ralph Stokesey once fought a magical duel with the Magician of Athodel, but with what success we are not told[63].
