these recordings were taken during a late summer vacation to scotland uk during 2014. locations recorded were glasgow, edinburgh, and the isle of skye.

in all cases, the audio is only edited to remove undesirable microphone handling, input overloads (usually due to wind), or unexpected events. in some cases, the tracks were left unedited to keep the environmental impact unchanged.

these tracks can be freely downloaded for use in film or other audio productions. please provide credit, should you choose to use them.

all recordings made by tyler newman in scotland during 2014. edits and mastering done by tyler newman in oakland during 2016. all tracks recorded using a tascam hard disk recorder and roland binaural microphones.
