He wins the hand of the Princess gem-de- lovely. My next rescus hen is going to be called that, I have decided.

Correct! And a good name for a rescue hen to boot. Your go.

I wouldn't have got it without your last clue. I had never heard of it but it is a great tale with many elements found in other folk tales/legends. Princess gem-de-lovely wouldn't be out of place as a pantomiine character. I also fancy Assipattle and Sickersnapper as hens names. Thank-you.

Q has some good PR.

Get this one out of the way, assuming it can't be right.
The Quiraing has lots of Pinnacle Rocks.

I expect this is wrong too. Quarff has some good prehistoric relics.

Wrong again I guess, but fishing for a clue.

Quartzite painted pebbles (rocks) are found throughout northern Scotland.

I'm looking for something more specific There is mention of other sites nearby for this but it is also obvious when you are walking on Quinag, particularly on the SE slopes of Spidean Coinich. I have used the common name rather than the scientific name which begins with S

Thanks, have not been there, so a bit of desk research was in order.

ES dwelt at W and may have supped at what is now SF.
