this is a looped field recording from the top of gallows hill in mugdock county park in milngavie looking towards the drowning pond.
the hill managed to be both the site of a gallows and of a pool used to test suspected witches by ordeal. in this method of testing innocence a suspect had their hands and feet bound and was thrown into water. if they floated they where a witch, if they drowned they where innocent.
captured using a hand held tascam dr-05 on the 3rd of september 2012
