Dr Lachlan Grant (1871-1945), was a General Practitioner in Ballachulish, journalist, scientific researcher and Medical Officer of Health. He was a star pupil of the Edinburgh medical school, who went on to general practice in the remote Highlands and Islands. He kept his medical research active, however, building his own private laboratory to continue working on medical problems such as TB (which reached epidemic proportions in the interwar Highlands), anaemia and eye health.
