Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Could we be in Scotland somewhere in the Hebrides?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture





You are both in the right part of the world but there are so many unique things about this place that it is hard to give clues without giving it away completely.

Not Scotland although, like Scotland, it was never part of the Roman Empire.

Not England although there are strong ties and the Queen is the monarch.

The policeman is a significant clue. There aren't many places where the police wear a white custodian helmet and fewer still where you will find that kind of landscape.

I did wonder about that, but technically......

Not Scotland, I've read of roman ruins in Wales, so....???? hmmm

EDIT.... lets try Peel Castle, Isle of Man....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Impressive detective work! This was going to be the next clue...



Purt ny Hinshey (Port of the Island) , otherwise known as Peel, it is.
IOM is a self governed British Crown Dependency who’s laws are determined by the Tynwald , supposedly the worlds oldest, continuously ruling, parliament.
I haven’t been there for many years but I have fond memories of the place.
