This wynd, in Old Aberdeen, connects between two parts of campus.
In past, when the students were marched up the street at the end (High
Street, which proceeds to The Chanonry) to go to services in St.
Machar's, the wynds served escape routes for those wishing to avoid
services. The down side? If you didn't run fast enough and got caught,
you had to go...after a good birching.
