Join us for a one-off opportunity to hear RSPB Baron's Haugh reserve through new ears. Sounding the Landscape is a collaborative project between RSPB Scotland and three artists inspired by the unique sound environment of this unique nature reserve. This guided walk taking in the work of Lisa Robertson and Calum Scott aims to engage visitors in the sound-world of the reserve.

Starting from the reserve car park RSPB staff will lead a 90-minute walk through the reserve focussing on birdsong and stopping to experience the work of the two artists on the way.

The Artists:
Lisa Robertson’s compositions make connections between nature and human folk culture. At this event she will be performing a solo piece for the violin which will mirror sounds from the environment such as the bird calls as well as other natural ambient sounds.

Calum Scott creates sculptures which respond to a location or a specific history and themselves create sound. His installation will be at the end of the walk inspired by the listening cave on the nearby Dalziell Estate

The Walk:
The walk is around 3km long on good paths taking in woodland, grasslands, wetlands and river habitats where we should see (and hear) a variety of birds and other wildlife.

Wear sturdy footwear and come prepared for the weather. If you have mobility issues please call to discuss as we may be able to offer a short option.
The event costs £10 per person, or £5 for RSPB members. Spaces are limited and booking essential.

Please call RSPB on 0141 331 0993, or email david.anderson@rspb.org.uk to book.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Sounding the Landscape are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
