Curing diseased cattle

This cure for cattle diseases was passed down through generations of the Dalchosnie family who were believed to possess the power to heal cattle. The cure involves collecting water from specific places and preparing it for the diseased cattle.

The remedy was used as late as 1826 by General Sir John McDonald of Dalchosnie who was also supposed to have the gift of healing humans by touch.

The cattle remedy was written down by Elizabeth McDonald of Dalchosnie
