Well as willk and wiLlfish seem to have both started on the single malts a bit early, it's a good job I have decided to wait at least another 48 hours before posting the answers

The Answers

Well here are the answers to the quiz:

1. You should be able to see St. Catherine's Lighthouse. The Needles are more like 300 T and are a lot further away.
2. 3 short blasts means it is reversing/about to reverse. Best get out of it's way?
3. They all transmit an AIS signal. Most others do not.
4. They are all major fishing ports. Expect to find diesel there.
5. Kiessimul Castle, Barra Bay, Barra
Lews Castle, Stornaway, Lewis
Lochranza, Arran
and of course, Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde
