The Kirkton of Glenisla Lady Well

Site of an ancient well.

The church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and this would imply a very feminine presence on this site, including the well.

In Celtic times wells, particularly those for the goddess Bridhe, would have played an important part in the seasonal rituals such as making offerings to the well on festival such as Beltain, the spring festival in May to help ensure good fortune on the success of the products of summer – the nurturing side of the young fecund female goddesses, later translated as the Virgin Mary.
