External Reference (2011)

When John MacLeod was young, only one stone of the well, covering the outflow, was visible, near the lower wall. The well was cleaned out and reconstructed in the mid 1990s by Martin Wildgoose and George Kozikowski, and people remember an interview by Roger Miket in the West Highland Free Press describing this.

Alternate name: Ashaig

Information from the ARCH, 2011


The well was previously recorded as part of the church Cill Ashik (NG62SE 1).
