Hi raymond
My copy didn't arrive today. Jazzy said on another thread that she had solved it, but more slowly than usual. Perhaps she will be able to help out.

I have inadvertently misled you there, raymond - jazzy only mentioned it in passing.

You may have thought Scottish countryside. I thought of ladies' underwear

But putting ladies' underwear aside (not literally!) I have trouble with 20ac. I have an answer that I think is right, but I don't see the full significance of all of the clue especially the "dispensing" bit.
Also with 19dn I have a word that fits and means "prestige" and it has a "d" in it for diamond, but do not see the meaning of the rest of the clue.
Am I being my usual silly self?

Wally: I think the "dispensing" bit refers to a cash machine (ATM).
As for the "prestige" one, I've got an Arabic word for a market better known in France upside-down around your D to make the word I presume you have (of Greek origin) for the definition "prestige"!

Nos da, Raymond. I hadn`t checked in as I`d finished it. I thought there were some cheeky little clues - e.g 7 ac. . 14 d had me stumped for a long time, still not quite sure of the parsing! Mags..

Hi all. Enjoyed this week's. For 20a. I think the first 7 letters of the answer refer to a machine which automatically dispenses food. If you put it "with a" you make a word for many moving toys.
