Colonsay and Harris are singular but Treshnish isn't as it is the Treshnish Isles?

Nuclear Power Stations? Chapelcross, Hunterston A, Hunterston B, Torness. Chapelcross and Hunterston A no longer generate.

Ok, knew it was MacBeth but hadn't made the link to Holinshed's Chronicles. The WS made it obvious.

Excellent. Your go. For those who are a bit shaky on WS it is William Shakespeare, but I'm sure everyone knew that.

Thanks. Should have had that immediately, one of my set texts at English Literature 'O' Level, when such things existed and I still have a copy of the play in my bedside cabinet amongst others.

Away with the gore, TGS was dedicated to LE or SM, if you will.

The Glasgow School was dedicated to (just for the hell of it) Light etching and stone masonry. OK, I know the Glasgow boys and Girls got up to far more prominent things, but I've looked at all Burns songs and none of them begin with TGS

Wide of the mark I fear. Pre dates The Glasgow School though LE was renowned in Glasgow.

Clue time. A careful perusal of those depicted on the Scott Monument may offer some help.
