I was thinking more on the lines of East Ayrshire Sauna Centre (I know it's a racy part of the country!).

I know some airports have a snooze cube. Can Edinburgh have introduced one?

So sleepy that I put up Elgin Sleep Apnea Clinic, which, of course, has the letters in the wrong order.

Haha...

All quality answers, but wrong I'm afraid.

Correct!

Well done Eddie.

It's a fine stone circle, just on my doorstep too. The recumbent is huge!

Your go.

Thank you LG. That's the advantage to us of using a location near your home.

DC is an outlandish place

Amphibious car? As well as 100+ miles there is the small matter of jumping back 200 years

I assume that's a "NO" then.


Is it Doune Castle as it featured in the film "The Outlander"? as did Dean Castle, Drumalanrig Castle and Drummond Castle

Sorry should have said it; but you assume correct - it is a NO :shock:
