Clan Beaton in the Highlands
Branches of Clan Beaton
In the Highlands of Scotland, Clan Beaton was known as Macbeatha or
MacBeth until the end of the 16th
century. They received the name "mac beatha" from their role as
physicians in the Highlands.
During the 1550s, a gentleman by name of
Bethune emigrated to the Isle of Skye from Fife, in the lowlands of
Scotland. His descendants on Skye now go by the name of Beaton.
