This is one of only three of this type of well in the UK and all are near Inverness. One is near Culloden whilst the other two are on the Black Isle in Ross & Cromarty. Craigie Well is at Avoch, and this one is quite near Munlochy, on the A832. It is a 'Clootie
Well' at an ancient spring dedicated to Saint Curidan (or
Curitan). Rags are still hung there on the surrounding bushes
and trees. At one time it was thought to have had the power
to cure sick children who were left there overnight. Craigie
Well at Avoch has both offerings of coins and
clooties. Rags, wool and human hair were also used as charms
against sorcery, and as tokens of penance or fulfilment.
