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.
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?

Once the work on the new linkspan at Ullapool is completed next month there is nothing to stop the MV Finlaggan being deployed on that route to cover breakdowns or the Loch Seaforth going for its annual winter service.
Of course if the self appointed Islay & Jura Ferry Group had “got their finger out” and complained to Simon Richmond of Calmac about the MV Finlaggan being moved from the Islay run last winter the breakdown of the MV Isle of Arran would never have materialised over the Easter holiday period.
- Castle Toward – let it go now
I am surprised that Michael Russell has not asked his mates at Holyrood to purchase Castle Toward for the people of Scotland.
The £1.75 million that Argyll & Bute Council is demanding as the sale price could be deducted from the Scottish Government annual hand out to the council for the financial year 2015-16.
Then everything would be sorted.
The Argyll & Bute councillors would have got their £1.75 Million sale price, the Scottish Government would own Castle Toward for the people of Scotland and most importantly it would not have cost the Scottish Government a penny to buy it.
- Castle Toward – let it go now
To date I have not taken any interest in the Castle Toward debate because I knew nothing about it.
The above report from BBC Scotland states that Argyll & Bute Council received Castle Toward due to the result of local government re-organisation in 1996 and they received it for the payment of £1.
Since then it has been a millstone round their neck.
Therefore Argyll & Bute Council should sell Castle Toward to the highest bidder as anything received is better than nothing.
Of course this will be a case of robbing “Peter to pay Paul” as no doubt taxpayers money will be given to the South Cowal Community Development Company to pay for the purchase.

Have you actually attended a senior professional football game in the past five years.
I have been at Dens Park Dundee and there is never any trouble apart from home games against Rangers and Celtic.
Therefore as a pilot scheme, alcohol could be sold to fans at games between clubs outwith the Old Firm.

There is no need to have a debate about the declining population in Argyll & Bute as the reason is quite obvious.
The schools in Argyll & Bute are keen for as many school leavers as possible to go university when they leave secondary school. Whilst that in theory may be a good idea in practice it means that most of the school leavers do not come back to work in Argyll & Bute after graduating from university as there are few if any jobs in their chosen field in Argyll & Bute.
Schools would be far better encouraging their school leavers to serve an apprenticeship in one of the trades but that does not look good in the league tables for secondary schools.
