A clue before I turn in, it is in Northwest Scotland.

From LHO - Plockton is in northwest Scotland, Kilmarnock is in south west Scotland, so there, she says!! Me, I'm in heaven wi' a dram in ma haun.

Jock. what a mess they have made of that square now, turned what was an attractive cross roads into a hellish, pedestrianised eyesore

I've heard of cryptic clues, but NW Scotland for Kilmarnock is ridiculous!

I was thinking of Tongue, or maybe Ullapool!

Jock1e, Well Done. Forgive the typo, I knew it was SW and not NW, honest ;o}

Kilmarnock (East Ayrshire) 'Church of my dear little St Ernan'.

Cill (Scottish Gaelic) 'church';

mo (Scottish Gaelic) 'of my';

Iarnan (personal name, reputedly of the priest and uncle of St Columba);

-oc (diminutive suffix).

The name was recorded as Kelmernoke in 1299. This Ayrshire market town was once synonymous with the blue bonnet worn by the Scottish countryman.
