Notes

The name is recorded on OS maps as that of a settlement beside a spring. It first appears in our sources as a ruin (OS 6 inch 1st edn, 1843x1882). It is likely that the spring was originally called St Ternan's Well, but we cannot be certain. The name may have been transferred from a well of the same name, for example, Banchory Ternan.
