Water of Leith Conservation Trust:

Sunday 14th December. Clean-up. Balerno. 10am – 12.30pm. Meet at Currie Rugby Club car park in Balerno. Take the 1st left after Balerno High School off Bridge road onto Bavelaw Road. Take the next left off Bavelaw Road. As before, we provide all the equipment just wear sensible warm outdoor clothes that you don’t mind getting mucky, walking boots / wellies and bring waterproofs just in case.

I would love to do this but have no means of getting out to Balerno and back except by public transport.

a tree that looks like a face

I thought this was a good Hallowe’en photo. It’s a real tree, and it really does look like that. I wouldn’t go near it after dark.

St Bernard’s Well

St Bernard's Well

St Bernard’s Well is named for St Bernard of Clairvaux, founder of the Cistercian order, who is supposed to have discovered it in the 12th century while taken ill when living in a nearby cave. (It’s only fair to say that most biographers do not record this stay in a Scottish cave.) Bernard was attracted to the spring by birds, but after some days of drinking the water (which is said to taste like “the washings of foul gunbarrels”, at least once gunbarrels had been invented) the saint was restored to health.

In 1788 Francis Garden, Lord Gardenstone (1721-1793) was so impressed by the well’s effects that he commissioned the circular temple over the wellhouse.
