Not a beast of any description...but an inventive try.

Somebody may have located the whereabouts of the BoB within a certain range, but it's too difficult to get at to check.

The ship Blessing of Burntisland - the wreck has never been found - and reportedly contains treasure?

In England, anyone finding treasure must report it to the local coroner within 14 days - not sure if that is the same in Scotland, but is C Coroner?

Thanks!

There's an east/west divide in relation to SAS (sometimes written SNS)

Let's just get Scottish Ambulance Service out of the way, since I'm fairly sure the bosses are in the east.

SAS is unrelated to any kind of emergency service... it is also unconnected to anything branded as "Who Dares Wins", and equally unconnected to Scandinavian Airlines Service (who once left me stranded above the Arctic Circle)
