OS 6" map (1967)

There are no structural remains on the site of the Lady Well. It is supposed to have obtained its name from the holy water, in the time of Popery, being taken from it to supply the abbacy, or Catholic chapel, then at Airth (NS98NW 12). The water was still used medicinally at the end of the 18th century (OSA 1742).
