Saint Fillan's Holy Pool [04:23]
Saint Fillan was a Celtic/Scottish Saint in the X files tradition being attributed with great powers over the forces of nature and was said at one point to be able to glow in the dark.

For some their bonds would be supernaturally freed overnight and these people were said to be cured by the powers of the Holy Spirit.

The present Palace was started (on an older site) in 1424 by James I of Scotland. It was burnt in 1746, and, whilst unroofed, it is still largely complete in terms of its apartments (though very few of the original furnishings survived).
