If you are searching for true wilderness in the UK then your travels will likely take you to Sandwood Bay, a large sandy beach on Scotland's north coast that neighbours the Cape Wrath peninsula. The John Muir Trust have produced a map of the most wild land in the UK and the land around Sandwood Bay ranks in the top 10%!
In the spring I went to A 'Chleit Beach on the Mull of Kintyre to see if I could record the beach 'chattering', a natural soundscape phenomenon that my gran had noticed one afternoon on a walk along the beach. Unfortunately on my visit the tide and weather conditions weren't suited and so ever since I have been listening out for this effect. Finally, when recording surf at Sandwood Bay, I noticed that when each wave crashed down upon the line of shingle and retreated it would cause the stones to roll and bounce over one another, chattering as they go. It is finding these small acoustic oddities that fuel my love for acoustic ecology and the natural soundscape, like popping seaweed, trees humming with bees or strange animal calls, carried by the wind but twisted beyond recognition.
