The General's Well, Inverness

The General's Well is near the bridge from Bught Park to the Ness Islands, Inverness. Its orgins are unknown. It has been speculated that it may refer to General MacIntyre who lived at Bught House in the nineteenth century. Others believe it is the ancient Saint's Well.

The ladle is the subject of the plaque on the side of the well. The plaque states that the ladle was presented, in 1872, by Kenneth Mackenzie before he emigrated to America and that the plaque itself was presented by his son, Robert K Mackenzie of Cleveland, in 1956
