Dr Robert Erskine pursued a successful career in Peter the Great’s Russia.  During his comparatively short life this eminent Scottish physician managed to amass one of the most extensive private alchemical collections in Europe for its day.  

To commemorate Sir Robert Erskine’s achievements, their was an unveiling of a black granite memorial tablet to Sir Robert Erskine, 6th son of Sir Charles Erskine of Alva in the North East section of Alva Kirkyard on 8 Sep 2007. 

I wanted to share this family photo of Robert Erskine with the community. Location: Alva Kirkyard, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. Date: unknown.
