St Helen's Well
St Helen's Well
The lochan contains the old St Helen's Well. In bygone days, its waters were believed to cure ailing children if taken on Mayday. Many Maybole mothers used to walk the 5 mile round trip on Mayday to get a jug of water from St Helen's if they thought that their offsprings weren't thriving as they should.
