Doctor's bill relating to funeral of Archibald Baillie, 1817

The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.

A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.

This document is one in a collection of bills and receipts relating to the funeral of Archibald (Archy) Baillie who died in 1817. It is a bill from Dr John Smith of Nairn for medicine and professional attendance when Archy died.The items mentioned include vinegar, which would have been used as a cleaning fluid, and castor oil
