Can I have a 'P' please Bob - Scotland

Can I have a 'P' please Bob - Scotland

This may crash and burn or it could be fun...
So if anybody is interested an easy one to get us started!

Which M is the deepest Loch. I'm a stop on the West Highland Line and my Silver Sands belong to the fictional village of Ferness ?

Erm, Morar?

Think they're gonna have to be a bit cryptic to challenge some of the users on here :)

Correct. Your go...

If I made it too cryptic to start and no one posted it would quickly disappear down the list, plus Scotland isn't my specialist area :wink:

The only sea loch beginning with S I can think of is Seaforth on Lewis - but I don't think that's an area of Liverpool? The only places in Liverpool I can think of starting with S are Sefton (but then I don't know the place)...

Just noticed that it was supposed to begin with 'S' not 'P'. Erm.. I'll get back to programming and coffee until my brain wakes up. Differentiating between letters isn't easy at this time of morning.

Learn something new every day :D Are you local to there? (Well, I can see you're at Forres, but did you come from Liverpool?)

Nope! Used to work near there though. Got home with my car in one piece :D
I guess icemandan needs to confirm the answer and decide who goes next.
Oh what the heck! Here goes.

What S is a loch that may bite?

I never know whether it's pronounced 'lion' or 'leon' - some Scot on here can tell us :D
