Re: Where's the Picture................Wales 2013

Re: Where's the pic England v5

I'm guessing you're in the Mendips, but where? I have never been there, so an internet derived guess at Ebbor Gorge?

Re: Pronunciation of town and village names

Scotland has no monopoly here. When I lived in London I frequented a restaurant in Beauchamp (Beecham) Place , then you could visit Cholmondley (Chumley) in Cheshire or Belvoir (Beaver) Castle or meet a Mr Featherstonhaugh (Fanshaw). Cross the border to Wales and all is lost! 😄

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Is this about lifting the Puterach stone onto the Pudrac standing stone? (many variant spellings…) If I am right, I think Rohan got it really, by locating Balquhidder (my computer keeps trying to change that to Baluchistan). Also I am hoping to do a long walk in the Black Mountains tomorrow so won’...

That would be Rob Roy MacGregor's grave at Balquhidder but as to the "P"s , I haven't a clue

So far, so good, keep searching and you'll find the "Ps"

A visit to B would more likely be to see the last resting place of an oft romanticised individual.

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Looks a fine buiding from the photos. Not a place I am likely to visit though.

Re: Don't always blame the Heron.

Speaking of snakes, I caught the tail end (!) of a segment about snakes on the ITV morning show this morning. From the context I think they must have been noting a rise in the number of snakes being encountered due to the unusually long spells of warm weather we have had lately, but they managed to...

One of only two examples from Scotland, it evidences a capability previously only conjectured. Is this the evidence of weaving textiles in the Neolithic age, found as an impression on a clay pot discovered at the Ness of Brodgar dig in Orkney? tim Correct, the other being from the Luce Sands site i...
