  • Was looking forward to visiting here as we visit Kagyu Samye Ling Tibetan centre in Eskdalemuir and they have a modern clootie tree which is rather beautiful and I knew the well was an ancient site. However, due to people tying huge amounts of synthetic materials to the trees which do not decay and merely turn dank and green, it comes across as a grubby, slightly sinister place. (Although I'm sure some people have put them there with the best of intentions). The sheer volume of socks, gloves and even shoes attached in the branches overwhelm any spirituality and holiness the well and site may have once had.
  • Fantastic little spot. Hidden away but really eerie but interesting to walk around. It's nice to place your own cloot too, to be a part of it.
  • This is a very strange place.... It's a few minutes for a visit and worth their effort to take part!
