|Description ||Heading east on the B9031 take a left turn (toward the sea) just before New Aberdour. The road passes Old Aberdour Church before ending in a carpark at the shingle beach. The well is just to the east of the carpark at the base of a hill.|
St Drostan used the water of this spring to baptise local people and was famed for his miracle cures. St Drostan died at Glenesk in 809AD. His remains were conveyed from Glenesk to Aberdour where they were placed in a stone coffin and long believed to work wondrous cures.
