Season 3: Episode 10 - Charles Macintosh of Inver and Beatrix Potter
Those familiar with the life story of Beatrix Potter will know that she holidayed with her family near Dalguise and her love of nature was inspired by the countryside in Perthshire. What many people may not know is that she was encouraged in studying nature by a very talented local man, Charles MacIntosh of Inver. Dr Nicky Small chats with David McLeod, about how Charles MacIntosh overcame a terrible accident as a young man to become a talented musician, a keen naturalist, a composer, and who worked in the area for the Post Office all his life. A part of that life was helping young people to study and enjoy the natural world around them and this, in turn, led a young Beatrix to write the Peter Rabbit stories we all enjoy today.
