Impressed with Claire's skill as a healer, Colum takes her to Davie Beaton's surgery; he was the last healer at Castle Leoch.
He wasn't a very good one, though. Don't believe us? One of his favorite medicines is dried horse dung. We hesitate to ask how that was administered.
Claire has a moment to herself to reflect and wonder just how in the heck she ended up two hundred years in the past, but she of course comes to no definitive conclusion.
She takes a break from lunch and brings Jamie food at the stables, where she learns a bit more about his injuries, including a peculiar wound on his neck. He doesn't know who dealt it to him, and Claire wonders if it was another clansmen.
After lunch, Claire returns to the surgery to inventory all the items.
She finds a chest of grisly (and stained) medical instruments, which she drags aside to be cleaned.
Once she's done, her first patient arrives: a young man with a sprained foot. Claire thinks, "apparently the new physician of Castle Leoch was now in practice" (7.131).
