Nope - that's not it :( . "From Largs to Lismore and keep going", I said. Didn't say turn right :shock:

Perhaps now you will find the tail of the puzzle.

Touché Charles. I'm getting my own back :lol:

Loch Spelve? - NO

Again you have taken the wrong direction (should you be allowed on the hills?) but close by your last location is a prominent place that is also named at LS. And go north - well north. :roll:

Loch Sguabain - NO (that's got that bit out of the way)

Loch Sguabain is about the same size as my location. It is up north so get off Mull and don't start looking until after you pass Ullapool. You and Charles have done the bulk of it and found 'Loch S.....' Now my location has a tail but is not white or even has stripes like a tiger.

Everywhere so far is a NO :(

Think of it as a crossword clue:- What word links fish, fin, tail, white and tiger?

Get your teeth into that :D

I've been thinking Loch Shark for a while, but didn't know such a place existed, but it does! Loch Shark then. :D

Well done CharlesT. I was crawling up the coast on the O/S but missed that one.

Getting old and slow, as well as lost(often). Should have landed this much sooner.

Now, in repayment of the pain inflicted on me.

CG was the home of G from whom came T and T who raised their own. :D

Appears a clue may be needed. :(

CG may more commonly be DT.
