Glen Creran and other features
Visit a mountain cemetery, a healing well, a well of the foresight, a corn and lime kiln, a rock carving and a fairy bridge. This route is over rough terrain; therefore participants will require a reasonable level of fitness and sturdy footwear. These sites are not maintained and requires a degree of exploration.
Travel over Connel Bridge designed by the Wolfe-Barry and continue north on the coast road towards Appin. A short walk will take you to St Cairell’s Healing Well. St Cairell, was a 7th century Irish monk from Iona. A further 20 minutes you will reach Cladh Churiollan an old mountain cemetery. A mile to the east are two of the famous wells – Tobar na Ghluin (Well of the Knee) and Tobar na Shuil (Well of the Eye). Close to these wells is a rock with a carved outline of a medieval galley in full sail, dated 1729. Return to the vehicle and drive a short distance into Glen Creran and visit the Fairy Bridge before returning to Oban.
