Past Lives, Series 16 Episode 5 of 5

Scotland just bleeds stories, and at Past Lives we have a theory that you can throw a dart anywhere in a map of of the country and find history. From time to time we get a listener to test that theory and this time Stuart Gibbs threw the dart for us - severing the River Spey and the Strathspey railway. Result! So this week we head to Strathspey where Mark goes on the footplate of the locomotive E V Cooper Engineer. Historian Fiona Watson takes us in search of Scotland's most unwanted tourist - Edward I. Gaelic scholar Seumas Grant takes us to the top of Cairngorm to remember the '45 and Louise Yeoman pores over that dart strike, digging up the story of the 'Miracle Stone of the Spey' and the big splash it caused locally. And as always we'll be answering your queries!
