Ph. [Parish] of Kilwinning

"A spring of fine water, a little to the south of Kilwinning Manse; which Hill bears the name of St. Winnings
"Well, was also celebrated for its virtues. But St. Winnins could curse the waters as well, as bless them, for one
"occasion, when the river Garnock would not yield up any of its fish to one of his angling friends, the saint pronounced
"a malediction on which
"the river 'left its bed, &
"followed another course
"adverse to nature.'
