Scotlandwell Wash House & Well

Perth & Kinross | Scotlandwell | Historic building | ★★

[Scotlandwell Well]

It should come as little surprise that the attractive Fife village of Scotlandwell is named after, well, a well. Springs bubbling up from the foot of Bishop Hill used to attract pilgrims from far and wide to "take the waters" and cure various ailments - with Robert the Bruce reputedly one of the patrons. A wooden Victorian shelter covers the most famous of the springs, with an adjacent building for communal washing. The latter now contains information panels and a small display of historical artefacts; access to the interior is by key from The Well Country Inn round the corner, which has an appetising range of food menus.
