Garment-Edge is now known as Garmintedge Bank - a little after Battle Bridge as you head from towards the A697 at the Bridge of Aln.

Hi there j_mcquillen, everyone!

Thank you so much for the info; you wouldn`t believe the amount of time, the hours I spent on the internet, pouring over ordnance survey maps and god wot else, all to no avail - gave up in the end!

Very much obliged to you!

PS. I Wonder why they changed the name; what possible reason could they have had?
