Nice quiz, pitched just right as far as I'm concerned - I knew I'd seen Hrossey on a map but couldn't think where. Portree's no city though, it's barely even a town.

Good range of questions. Though i got several right by making the wrong guess for another one 😊

I understand that the quiz description states that these islands are either partially or wholly owned by the UK, however I still take issue at Ireland's inclusion. We've spent the past 100 years trying to distance ourselves from our time under London's rule yet people still seem to lump us together.

Surely islands should only be considered for this quiz if 50% of the land is considered British? 26 of the 32 counties of Ireland are run by Dublin and the other 6 will probably join suit soon enough.

Rant over :)

Just to be clear, I enjoyed the quiz regardless.
