Yes, the first cottage is catching me too - recognise it but can't place it. I can testify that 3 of your guesses are correct as I stay not that far from them.

9 out of 9 so far, Mick you have done very well. The Historic Environment Scotland entries were selected for 2021, and within that random selection pulled out those 10. Did a chop up and image search come up with the goods Mick :?: The Historic Environment Scotland site doesn't come up with an image for every entry. Thanks for the joining in :!:

impoving.lads.moderated is the location of the toilet in the house I was almost born in. I was almost born in the taxi that took me to the Elsie Inglis Maternity wing that we had fun over much early in this Forum.

Anyone who has the slightest bit of curiosity will look up their own house. I know I did. Super idea, I'd heard of it but didn't really know how it worked. :-D

Here was one of the non random entries I came across in paddling around the Historic Environment Scotland but perked a connection and an interest.

I think you should knock this one off without thinking too hard Dormouse :-D
