    1. I’d never heard the name until we came across this one in Cornwall, though I’d come across similar trees in other places. They’re a wonderful sight. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.

    1. Cloutie (or Clootie) trees are places of pilgrimage and healing found in Celtic lands, generally beside a cloutie well. People dip a rag, preferably torn from near the part of their body that they wish to have healed, into the water and they tie it to the tree as an offering to whoever the well is sacred to. In ‘modern’ times this is usually a Christian saint, but originally it would have been a goddess or local nature spirit. I’m glad you like the picture, PJ. 🙂
