The Kirkton of Glenisla Lady Well

Site of an ancient well.

The adjacent church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, implying a very feminine presence on this site, including this well.

In Celtic times, wells, particularly those for the goddess Bridhe, would have played an important part of seasonal rituals. On festival occasions such as Beltain, the spring festival in May, offerings would have been made to the well to help ensure good fortune for the success of summer harvests.
