Beatrix Potter's Scotland - Her Perthshire Inspiration

  • The Aytoun Hall High Street Auchterarder, Perthshire, PH3 United Kingdom (map)

Lynne McGeachie gives a talk on her book Beatrix Potter’s Scotland to Auchterarder and District Local History Association.

Lynne McGeachie's interest in Beatrix Potter began many years ago. The discovery of Potter's Perthshire connections and the fact that The Tale of Peter Rabbit had its beginnings there inspired Lynne to write The Tale o Peter Kinnen, the first translation into Scots of that classic of children's literature. Lynne has a passion for the nature and wildlife of her native Scotland and completed the Munros with her husband in 1991.

Tickets for non-members are £3. For more information please visit the Auchterarder and District Local History Association website.
