(NT 2280 9880) Finglassins Well (NAT)

OS 6" map, (1968)

A spring of fine water, called St Glass's Well or St Finglassin's Well is near Kinglassie church. According to Watson, the real saint of Kinglassie is unknown. (c/f NX74NE 15)

E M H M'Kerlie 1916; W J Watson 1926.

This spring is now piped into a trough. There are several boulders nearby but no dressed stone and it is doubtful if there was ever any structure here. It is known by both names.

Visited by OS (J P) 19 June 1974.
