We turned down a birthday card yesterday which went something like "Golfer 1 'Did you see where it went' Golfer 2 'Yes, but I've forgotten' ......on the grounds that it might upset the recipient. Don't think you are there yet, and hope I'm not.

Guessing, Mealt Falls.


Right. Skye is getting more and more visits. I didn't even have to use my KR clue. You haven't accessed a way of viewing my google searches have you?

Hawick Reivers Festival? F stands for Festival as well as ferry and falls.

The Merry Dancers are not found in Dance, but are an old Orcadian name for the Aurora Borealis.
