Holy Wells of Scotland

Posted by True Highlands in Kit and Caboodle | 1 comments


Healing wells have a long tradition in Scotland. At one point, there was estimated to be over 600 of them operating in every corner of the country. Each had its own distinct history attached and were associated with different saints or specific ailments that they could cure. Rickets, gout, lunacy, blindness, infertility and yes, even hangovers could be cured if you knew where to go and the correct offering to make.

The North Coast 500 route finally reaches the north east corner of mainland Scotland at John O’Groats. Be sure to take the obligatory photo at the famous sign, then head a whisker further east along the single track road to Duncansby Head. From the lighthouse it’s a three kilometre walk across the grassy cliff tops to the Stacks of Duncansby, two stunning sea-stacks with dramatic cliffs as their backdrop.
