A NEW podcast is capturing the sounds of West Fife gems and bringing a new perspective of the Kingdom to light.

Liam Flinn is from Burntisland but is travelling across Fife to record the unique sounds of each area and make them available for the public.

He told the Press: "I had already had the idea anyway because I have two dogs and we're out all the time walking in these different places and I thought it would be pretty cool if you could record the sounds of different places and then folk could relate to them in the sense that they've maybe been there before.

"What folk will do is, they go to places and they'll see things but they don't necessarily take in the sounds and what's actually going on about them, so it was just to try and give people a different perspective on places in Fife."

Equipped with just a mic and his stand, Liam has visited four places in Fife, including North Queensferry and Cullaloe Woods, and recorded the peaceful and diverse sounds there for the public to listen to and explore through casual listening, meditation, yoga or even as they're drifting off to sleep.

He originally started the parent podcast of Fife Sounds, Did Ye Aye to show people Fife's true colours.

Liam continued: "Initially, I started the podcast in 2019 and it was about giving people a different perspective on Fife. Sometimes Fife gets seen as the Ugly Sister to Edinburgh and it's kind of an afterthought in a lot of peoples minds.

"This is similar in a way, the motivation behind it was to highlight these really beautiful places, Fife has so many, like the Maspie Den and the Lomond Hills. It's actually really nice but folk tend to focus on the negatives more than the positives."

In the first four episodes of Fife Sounds, Liam visits Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy, North Queensferry, Kingsbarns Beach and Cullaloe Woods, but he plans to keep visiting stunning locations throughout the Kingdom and he's taking suggestions.
