Is it Morningside and Kelvinside? Both being areas of their respective cities that the term "all fur coat and nae (k)nickers" may be applied (allegedly). an bear other similarities. They are both "sides" but on opposite sides of the the country.

Yes, Morningside and Kelvinside, two SIDES on opposite sides (of the country). The fur coat and no nickers (yes, should be knickers :oops: ) is a possibly scurrilous rumour that I'm not brave enough to settle.

Picture is William Thomson, Lord Kelvin.

So - rohan, Sgurr, Charles - let battle commence for the privilege of setting the next clue.

I'll jump in with an easy one then. C a'C might be holy(🙂) but has a darker side perhaps.

Anything to do with the Cairns of Clava, a holy burial ground with add-on curse for anyone who removes a stone?

Afraid not, but you're in the right age more or less.
