I had the good fortune to spend the middle of June in the Highland’s of Scotland – I ate my own body weight in cake and visited my Granny. I affectionately call her Granny Dornoch – the whole family does – quite how she started to be called Granny Dornoch is a mystery; but she doesn’t mind.
Whilst up there I recorded over fourteen hours of sound from Dornoch Town and surrounding countryside – the amalgamated sound map is written up in my portfolio and released for sale in my shop. In the portfolio page you have the opportunity to listen to the recording – quite how long this will stay up there is a mystery … but, hey.
There are recordings of various wildlife, cathedral bells, shorelines and even Granny Dornoch makes an appearance – quite what she would make to being in the opening of a Sound Map I do not know.
