Clue time again. A contemplation of table condiments could identify DD.

Another clue. GM and DD are fictional characters, DD giving his name to the non-fictional and non-human characters.

Is GM Guy Mannering and DD Dandie Dinmont? The latter was a farmer with terriers, one of whom was Auld Pepper and Auld Mustard.

My childhood ambition of reading all the books in the world came to an abrupt end when I came across my parents' Complete Waverley, and the only acquaintance I have had with it since was as a bookseller when I always carried a check-list of Scott and Dickens in the hopes that I could reasonably turn down books if the set wasn't complete. (Sometimes waived in the case of Dickens).

At last! Was running out of ideas for clues. I find both authors turgid I'm afraid, possibly the serialisation effect.

Your go.

Come on all you connoisseurs. (Who would have thought that con-o-sirs was so difficult to spell. )

Sorry Sgurr, I thought this lock down would create plenty of time to do this. Rubbish, it is not social isolation (just physical) since the start of it I have never stopped socialising with all sorts (all at home of course) of old friends and relatives that I don't usually talk to from 1 month to the next. It is great but I am also determined to fit in a good walk each day so I don't seize up. I keep meaning to think about these posers when I am out walking but there is too much to see and distract me. Yesterday it was a peregrine, today it was the first puffin of the year. I promise to give it some thought, tomorrow!

Maybe no one has been looking at this. A final throw, you can eat it.

Atholl Brose is known as Cranachan?

Yes. Ingredients pretty similar. Also see Wiki


This is the land side of Kirkhill (old people's apartments) where the East Infants used to be.
