Can I have a 'P' please Bob - Scotland

Cullen Skink is associated with Cullen but only a small percentage of the total consumed will be served there. I'm pretty certain this isn't the answer though!

It IS the answer! Don't know why you thought it mightn't be. I didn't even have to use my cryptic second clue that the exact % could vary over time. Your go

Here in the NE Cullen Skink is on nearly every menu so I thought of it pretty quickly..Personally, I am not a fish (or meat) lover and it doesn't appeal. I thought it would be harder(but the answers you know are always the easy ones) and had been convinced it was the Caithness stone so was prepared to be wrong.

TT looks down on theTP and they both look down on TH

In terms of size, TH is bigger than TT which is bigger than the TP.

I don't suppose it is Tongue Tower looks down on Tongue Point and they both look down on Tongue Harbour (since it isn't really Tongue Harbour, it is something else)

Just experimenting with words

Tobermory tree looks down on Tobermory pubs which looks down on Tobermory Harbour. Are any of these words right?

There are no repeated words in the answer and don't forget the definite article. Note I am not telling you if you have any words right this time. Is there such a thing as "Tobemory tree"?

I'm not sure how much it helps but technically speaking I think I should have said
both look down on
, i.e with quotation marks.

Everyone is finding this very hard. Is TT a transmitter tower?

Tower is right but not a dull transmitting one. Everybody who uses Walkhighlands should get what the TP is; there are many across the country. This will probably give you a clue to what H is. Both the first and last T are proper nouns.

Correct, but I'm sure you bag the rest.

If you were flying from A to B (or anywhere else) you may look down on all 3.

So is H for Hill? I can't think of anything else that trig points are associated with.

(Something) Tower overlooks the Trig Point which overlooks the (something) Hill?

This one's certainly not coming to me while drifting off to sleep...
