Boleskine comprises an unfolding set of sound recordings made over a three-mile stretch of General Wade’s Military Road set on the south-east shore of Loch Ness. Scattered throughout the luminous countryside are memorial stones, burial ground, and various ruins indicating a long and troubled history. Boleskine situates the metaphysical alongside the prosaic to offer an encounter with a place of curiosity, imbued with atmosphere and shrouded by intrigue.
