The Reel Of Tulloch is one of Scotland's best known country dances, and was made up one cold winter morning when the minister at Tullich Church thought no-one would come to church. His waiting parishioners made up the dance and tune to keep warm. 

HO RO PANNANICH WELLS

[By P4/5, Tune : The Barren Rocks Of Aden]


Ho ro Pannanich Wells, Pannanich Wells, Pannanich Wells

Ho ro Pannannich Wells, the water that built Ballater


Elspett Michie cured hersel, cured hersel, cured hersel,

Ho ro Francis Farquarson, Farquarson, Farquarson

Ho ro Francis Farquarson, the Baron that built Ballater

The ferry couldna cope wi them, the fowk that cam tae Ballater


That's fit wey they biggit the brig, biggit the brig, biggit the brig

That's fit wey they biggit the brig, the auld steen brig at Ballater

Ballater was built by Francis Farquarson to accommodate the people coming to 'take the water' at Pannanich Wells spa. The healing properties of the water were found out by Elspet Michie in the later 18th Century, who had suffered from scrofula, known as The King's Evil. The old ferry at the Boat of Dalmuicheachie could not cope with all the visitors, so the first of four Ballater bridges was built.
