My (now) wife discussed this problem with a friend when they both travelled south to go to University. What would they do with a boyfriend from distant lands that they might meet at University? How would they best introduce him to the delights of Wick? It was agreed that it was the journey up to Wick through much blasted heath (maybe that included Lossie) that would put them off. So I was flown up for my first visit to that gem of the far North. It clearly worked - we have been married for over 50 years.
Now, being a supporter of the Scorries, I have to feel pity on Lossie, languishing at the bottom of the league, just above Fort William .
And back to the thread - Wick is at Latitude 58.44 degrees North. That is about 7 degrees north of London, and less than 3 degrees south of Anchorage, Alaska.
