The Well at Scotlandwell
The Well at Scotlandwell
The well here, and other springs in the vicinity, were renowned in ancient times for their restorative qualities. It was described in early charters as Fons Scotiae, (Latin for 'Scotland's Well') and in the 13th century an ancient Celtic hospital here was gifted by William Malvoisin, Bishop of St Andrews, to the Trinitarians or Red Friars. King Robert the Bruce came here in a vain attempt to cure the leprosy from which he suffered, and held a parliament. It has been suggested that the present name dates from the time of Cromwell. The canopy was built in 1858.
