Statement of Interest

This tiny well, beside the road which runs through the Forest of Birse, is in memory of one of Scotland's best known landscape painters Joseph Farquharson (1846-1935), particularly noted for his snowscapes. Farquharson's father was laird of the nearby Finzean Estate. Joseph Farquharson's paintings were often inspired by the Aberdeenshire landscape, including a painting of the Finzean Saw Mill and Turning Mill (see separate listing).
