Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Even though I doubt that I'm correct, my immediate thought was "Single Malt... Scotland... Islay". Perhaps I just have whisky on my mind. But it does look like left-hand drive traffic and the form and color of the license plate would fit as well.

Almost as far north as Cape Horn is to the South.

Not Islay, but you're close. There is an Islay distillery that produces a single malt with its "spiritual home" on the island we're looking for.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oh great That narrows it down to a couple of hundred Scottish Isles reachable only by ferry... How about the Isle of Arran, that ferry landing could be it and Arran is a good whisky to boot.

I recently had a tasting of Bowmore, the oldest Islay, which prompted my first post and I was fairly certain that I was thousands of miles away - just goes to show the power of suggestion and how the subconscious mind notices things.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's on the map, which really narrows things down--not "thousands"! This view is from the other side of the ferry route, looking back to the mainland terminus.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Armadale or Craignure

(I looked for a short ferry trip between 2 large bodies of land.)

Between Rhubodach and Colintraive is where the ferry operates, at least part of the time.
