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 idea of modern pilgrimage can be explored through visiting special places where we live, in Scotland and around the globe on our own journeys of reflection and discovery. It can also be a spiritual or creative journey or another experience.
