The Highland Spring source, fabled since 1503 and King James IV of Scotland, comes from the Ochil Hills regional formation of red sandstone and basalt. This formation is some 400 million years old, and encompasses the nearby Gleneagles source also.

Highland Spring is even lower in minerals than Gleneagles - virtually sodium-free, and nitrate-free. It is one of the elite lotw-TDS natural mineral waters on earth.
