Notes

It is situated on the side of the track or road called the Firmounth Road, that runs south from Glentanar. The well is close to the summit of the route, and a short distance from the summit of Hill of St Colm, which marks a turning poinot in the parish boundary and which the road passes by a short distance to the east. The well is very close to the same parish boundary, between Aboyne and Glentanar to the west and Birse parish to the east.
