    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

10 Responses

  1. 1. Largs
    2. Dunno
    3. Stirling Bridge
    4. Ayr
    5. Inveraray
    6. Balamory
    7. Dunbar
    8. Hawick
    9. Glasgow

  2. Number two is definitely Brechin and number five is Inveraray – I grew up in Brechin and was married in Inveraray. I thought number three was Dumfries and number four was Perth, but I’m probably wrong.

  3. Thanks for having a go lads!

    Jaggy you got three and Mark you got two! Anyone else?

  4. Here’s some clues,

    1) Some city rollers get away from it all here

    2) Correctly id’d as Brechin

    3) One of our regular correspondents lives in this place and it’s in the north east

    4) Correctly identified as Ayr.

    5) Correctly identified as Inveraray

    6) Not Tobermory but a look upwards from there may help.

    7) Correctly identified as Dunbar.

    8) Has connections to football

    9) No clues! Too easy for too many here!

  5. wemyss bay

    torpedo factory outlets

  6. Is number 6 Portree? (Isle of Skye)

  7. Good collective effort.

    1) Wemyss Bay
    2) Brechin
    3) Ellon
    4) Ayr
    5) Inveraray
    6) Portree
    7) Dunbar
    8 )Montrose (connections – Links geddit?)
    9) Alexandria (as Campbell points out the torpedo factory but originally the Argyll motor works)

  8. Can’t believe I missed Montrose…..

  9. Never mind Mark, I’m sure our mutual friend has looked by and didn’t recognise where he lived either!

  10. Dropped by but had no time to respond before heading South.

    Borrowing F-In-Laws laptop now and have to say I would have got 2,3, 5 & 7 but strangely not 9 despite my old man working there for years!
