St Ronan's Wells (NAT)

OS 6" map (1964)

Originally published as 'Inverleithen Well' (Mineral)

Name Book 1856

This mineral spring was formerly called the 'Dow-well', its water is now recognised as curative and it is resorted to by many visitors. Had it been known in ancient times as a medicinal water, without doubt the clergy would have taken advantage of that fact and dedicated it to some saint.

NSA 1845

St Ronan's Well at Innerleithen is not noted by Walker in his list of holy wells in Scotland.

J R Walker 1883
