Tiree`s first veterinary surgeon at the reins in the 1930s

Duncan MacLean (1904-1958) was the son of a Balevullin crofter, who, like many Tiree boys, went to sea after leaving school. However his school headmaster encouraged him to return to education, and in 1932 he graduated from Glasgow University as a fully qualified vet. He returned to Tiree in the late 1930s and became the island`s first vet.
