A medical instrument used in the Scottish highlands, up to the early `60´s, to assist in consitpation. It consisted of a large rubber sphere with a 6 inch tube attached. The sphere was filled with luke-warm water and a little amount of liquid soap. The tube would then be attached and pushed gently up your bottom and the contents emptied into your bowels.............the rest came naturally and very quickly.
I got this treatment of the Ballachulish bagpipes as a small child a couple of times.
