Tobar Iain Bhain
Tobar Iain Bhain
Iain Bain's Well. Iain Ban/Bain was the father of Mary MacPherson, the Skye poetess, also know as Mairi Nighean Iain Bhain or Mairi Mhor nan Oran. I believe he was a tacksman on the Skeabost estate. The well has the date 1841 on the stone. At that time it was on the verge of a main road, which today is only a track.
