Publisher's Summary

Every traveller to Scotland is enthralled not only by the spectacular scenery, but also the wealth of wildlife in the country and its surrounding islands. Wild Scotland brings together a selection of 30 of the most vocal and representative species of this region, some of which can only be found in this area of the British Isles.

The sounds of Capercaillie, Corncrake, Red Deer, Black Grouse, Pine Marten, Osprey and the iconic Golden Eagle are just a few examples of the species featured on this new audio download from the British Library - an essential audio guide for anybody visiting this part of Britain. A narrator announces the name of each species at the beginning of each track.

    Story
    "A good idea and listen."
    Where does Wild Scotland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    somewhere in the middle. Okay, but not my favourite.


    What other book might you compare Wild Scotland to, and why?

    It's the same in concept as Wild London but different sounds.


    What does Fiona McCarthy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    What a stupid question. This book wouldn't work in print. the sounds of animals need to be listened to. No phonetics can really come close to the natural sounds. Fiona doesn't do anything other than announce each species.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is a good idea and I enjoyed listening to it. again, I've heard the mammalian sounds before in other books.
