Are we at Bite-About at Prentannan? Bite -about because when besieged, they ran out of food and had to take turn and turn about to eat.

We are. :clap: Got there in the end. To fill in a bit, the name suggested a Bap and the family(clan) who own it are the Trotter clan, thus my reference to Del Boy and his Reliant Robin van (aka the Plastic Pig).

Your go.

Is it a Clan Standard? If so, I'll guess Douglas, just for starters. Pure guess on all sides.

No, nothing akin to clans or standards. There are lots of these scattered around Scotland.

Afraid not, but you're on the right track. Not quite as large.

Is it the Dunadd Carved Stone? (If not, have I got 2 words right?) Actually, it is quite big, so maybe wrong.
