This spring has been used for centuries. Its Gaelic name - Fuaran lag an dromain - means the spring of the hollow of the ridge.
It has always been popular: local residents drew water here long after the village had a piped water supply. Some believed the well had healing properties: at least one resident requested water from the spring on his deathbed. The water was reckoned to be particularly good with whisky.
The Newtonmore Community Woodland & Development Trust recently refurbished the site and put up an interpretive panel on which you will find further information.
