  • Fantastic place to fall in awe of ole Scottish beliefs. Take a rag to dip in the well to wash any areas where you have an ailment and then tie around a tree. Make sure to circle the tree three times leaving your offering...Quite moving and amazing place. A must see. Outlander fans will love it. Thanks Gordon from WOW Scotland for giving us they way to find it.
  • Very unusual feeling place, but it's really nice. You can feel the history when you're there. You'll maybe only spend about 30 minutes here max.
  • Interesting, atmospheric place. Google before you visit to understand the reason for attaching strips of cloth/clothing to trees
  • Interesting, but unsettling. The small woodland around the well makes for pleasant walk though. Lots of interesting plants, trees and fungi.
  • Fascinating walk didnt expect so much to see the after we did the extra walk and was so nice
