Today is Beltane, one of the most important days in the Scottish pre-Christian calendar. It is a day steeped in mystery, when fires were built, offerings made and rituals enacted. There has been a rekindling of interest in Beltane in the last decade with a resurgence of contemporary festivals celebrating the occasion with reinterpretations of tradition instead of recreations of past rites.

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.
