Housing development with a bit of tourist camo on the side.

One question / something's missing -- where is the golf course?

It's: add a little North American to a bowl, fold in some sudo-Scottish, beat in a council scheme, add a dollop of Swis log cabin and finish with a sprinkle of salt and a twist of pepper and serve on a plate. To really elivate this dish add some edible flowers for colour, available in most supermarkets.

Some really nice bits in this actually. It's just going through a bit of an idenity crisis.
