Scotland is famous for its rough nature and infamous for its winds. It's cinematic landscape of lush heathland, rolling hills and towering mountains surrounding the mystical Highlands take your breath away. This diverse landscape with almost no trees is perfect to record the atmospheric phenomena of wind. The small hills and hillocks were ideal to hide from the direct wind blasts and just record the pure symphony of wind energy transforming into sound. We drove all over the Scottish Highlands, about 2000km, to find as many different perfect recording spots as possible to deliver you the most versatile and complete rushing winds library out there.
(Nearly) no birds were interrupting us, let alone humans, as we explored the wilderness and loneliness of Scotland. Only the wind was our constant companion. During our trip, we also got a lot of help by the remarkably friendly locals, who helped us to find some particularly special recording places.
