The Deil's Well
The Deil's Well
The spring in the foreground is named on the 1850 OS map as the Deil's Well. In a neighbouring field about 200 metres to the southeast is the site of Ghaist Hall (Link ) and it seems very likely that the two are linked to the story of the haunting of Campbell's Croft in the mid 17th century.
