The city, which is situated on the southern coast of England, is certainly no stranger to unusual noises thanks to what is known as the 'Plymouth Hum' - a mysterious low droning sound that authorities have been struggling to explain for years.

Hundreds of people claim to have heard the hum with some maintaining that it has even prevented them from sleeping at night. One theory suggests that the humming noise may be caused by waves vibrating on the sea floor - something that only a small percentage of people can hear.

This new sound however, which you can listen to below, seems to be something else entirely.

I have heard this sound too, many times, and as a yacht owner, I know what it is. It comes from the local marina. When the wind blows across the vertical slot in the back of yacht masts, it can set up a resonant hum, like blowing across the top of a bottle. The confirmation is the sound of tinkling in the background, which is the sound of unsecured halyards tapping against masts.

What's really eerie is when you hear something like this in the middle of the Scottish mountains, miles from the nearest road, track or habitation.    Especially in the middle of the night ....... Rusting Victorian-era fenceposts in lonely glens have much to answer for!
