(NX 7190 5713) St Ringan's Well (NR)

OS 6" map (1957)

St Ringan's Well, which is situated not far from Kirkcormack, is described by M'Kerlie as an oblong aperture, full of clear brown water, with a stone slab, which had been used as a cover, lying on one side, among nettles, grass and stones. St Ringan is a local variant of St Ninian.

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

St Ringan's Well has been filled in and the water piped into an open tank about 50.0m to the SW. The name is still in local use.
