The members of Clan Maic-bethad or Clan MacBeth, later 'Beaton', practised medicine in the classical Gaelic tradition in various parts of Scotland from the early 14th to the early 18th century. Using many medieval Gaelic manuscripts associated with the Beatons, this study reconstructs the history of the kindred and their medicine, from their origins in Ireland to their heyday in 17th-century Scotland, when patrons included the kings of Scotland, and the clan's demise after 1700.
