Scotlandwell

The Well, ScotlandwellSpring water from the well, from which the village gets its name, was thought to cure many diseases. A hospital, established in 1250 by the Red Friars, became a popular destination for pilgrims including Robert the Bruce who visited the village in search of a cure for leprosy.

The well was one of several in the area, referred to in old documents as "Fontes Scotiae" or the "Wells of Scotland" As long ago as 84 AD, Roman soldiers marching between their camps at Lochore in Fife and Ardoch in Perthshire may well have stopped to take the waters and rested there.
The canopy over the well was built in 1858.

The famous Poet of Loch Leven, Michael Bruce is buried in the tranquil churchyard at Portmoak Church.
