Hebridean Healers: The Beatons of Mull

Friday 25 October | 10.00 – 11.00am

A voyage of discovery into the story of the Beatons of Pennycross – members of one of Scotland’s most significant medical families. The book explores the historical setting, the Beatons’ herbal treatments (many of which are still used) and the almost unbelievable survival of Gaelic manuscripts from their library. The site of their physic garden can still be seen today.
