Cardiff is really hard to identify. I tried every city on the eastern coast of England and Scotland.

Consulting a map won’t help. The U.K. is a political term, not a geographical one. The Isle of Man is not politically part of the U.K., it is a Crown Dependency, on the same legal basis as Jersey and Guernsey.

'Na h-Eileanan Siar', 'Na h-Eileanan an Iar', 'Eilean Siar' and 'Western Isles' should probably be accepted for 'Outer Hebrides'. The first three are three variants of the Gaelic name and the later is a common English alternative.

Almost didn't guess Anglesey as it asked for an island chain.

exactly it is an island connected to the mainland by a bridge..... by no stretch of the imagination can it be described as a chain

Yeah, I looked at it and was pretty sure it was Anglesey but the bit about being an island chain threw me off for a second; I'm guessing it's a mistake. Quizmaster?

Why is Wales a "country", not a country? I mean, it IS a country, so why the inverted commas? Or is the setter in the (strange) habit of conferring inappropriate punctuation on all the countries of the UK?

Wales has an odd status: in some contexts, it's a "principality", and the England & Wales Cricket Board is initialised to "ECB". Primarily, it seems to serve as the butt of many English jokes and prejudices. But it's a country in its own right.

The Humber is technically an estuary, not a river.

Yes that confused me somewhat. The question asks for a river, I entered "Trent", because that's the major river that comes out at the estuary, and that wasn't accepted. When I arbitrarily entered "Hull" because that is the city we are looking at, that was accepted. I think I would just change the clue to ask for 'estuary'.
