Mel.
The answer is Perth because it lies between two inches, the North Inch and the South Inch.

  • This is not a joke.
    Which is further west, Dundee or Carlise.
  • Sorry I do not.
    I was trying to broaden knowledge about Scotland for people who live in Argyll & Bute and beyond.
  • Mel.
    On the front page of today’s Dundee Courier there is an article headed “Games move, but it’s only by Inches”
    Perth Highland Games are moving from the South Inch to the North Inch because of the summer deluge.

    It is a trick question, but if you have never been to the City of Perth then it is unlikely that you will know the answer.
  • Here is a question for all of you.
    Which is the smallest city in Scotland?

  • Michael Russell’s message to Argyll
    Wee fat guy is totally correct what he says about Michael Russell.
    Several weeks ago I sent my MSP Michael Russell an email asking him if the 5p bag tax was applied to doo poo bags as a veterinary practice in the Tayside area had charged a responsible dog owner a 5p bag tax charge for dog poo bags which the practice had previously issued free of charge.
    I received an “out of office” reply from Michael Russell stating that he was on two weeks annual leave and advising me to phone hill constituency office in Dunoon.
    It was earlier on the Sunday morning when I phoned the telephone number quoted on his email and left a message on his office answerphone.
    However the answerphone in Michael Russell’s office in Dunoon is not a normal answerphone as the abusive email I received from Michael Russell the same morning told me that his office answerphone was for emergencies only.
    Who in their right mind would phone Michael Russell in an emergency. Certainly not me I would only contact him as a last resort not a first resort in an emergency as he is worse than useless!
    I immediately sent an email to Michael Russell asking him where on his “out of office” reply did it state that his office answerphone was for emergencies only.
    After a series of emails between Michael Russell and myself he refused to change his “out of office” reply to advise his constituents that his office answerphone was emergencies only.
    Michael Russell obviously does not realise we are currently living in a democracy and not a dictatorship.
    If he wants to live in a dictatorship he should go and live in Russia.

  1. I am surprised that there are not more serious accidents on the A85 from Tyndrum to Dalmally as motor bikers seem to think that they are a law unto themselves.
    Whilst driving on this stretch of the A85 especially during the summer months I see motor bikers weaving amongst the traffic and overtaking on blind corners. It is no wonder that this road is often closed due to accidents.
    With any road it is not the road that is dangerous it is the people using it that cause the accidents. You cannot have accidents if the road has no vehicles on it.

    • True, some drivers behave like lunatics, but not true that ‘it’s not the road that’s dangerous’ – there are places in Argyll where the road configuration is very clearly unsafe. And what’s this about ‘you cannot have accidents if the road has no vehicles on it’ – do you think roads are for decoration only? – this reminds me of days gone by in the Middle East, when there were suspicions that strangers were sometimes found guilty of causing accidents on the principle that if they hadn’t been there the driver on the wrong side of the road would still be alive.

    • Presumably they weren’t, but the criticism of bikers is fair comment – some of the ‘bike packs’ that come out in good summer weather do behave like absolute lunatics, without any doubt whatsoever. So, of course, do some car drivers.

  2. Regardless of whom was to blame, one of my colleagues was involved in this accident. Let’s pray that both drivers recover from this tragic incident. My thoughts are with you both.

  3. People say that the A9 from Perth to Thurso is a killer road but this is only because motorists take un-necessary risks to try to reach their destination a few minutes earlier.

    • It’s not as simple as that, is it? Aren’t people usually referring to the stretch from Perth to Inverness, where part of the problem seems to be the way that the road switches repeatedly between single and dual carriageways.

  4. Most people wrongly assume that it is the stretch from Perth to Inverness but there have also been serious accidents on the Inverness to Thurso section.
    I could have just mentioned Perth to Inverness but no doubt someone trying to clever would have stated that the A9 started in the City of Perth and finished in Thurso.

    • That’s an unfair question for the rest of us since Bobby Wakeham has a permanent direct link to Wikipedia (how else can he authoratively comment on so many issues?).
      Anyone back to Stirling for me now (oops).

    • Ah right! It’s a play on words. I can’t quite get the hang of the limey sense of humour, but full marks for what is clearly a very funny joke. Got any others?
