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

Pleased to see that the Welsh for Anglesey was allowed with no prompting.

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.

Being a Diffian I recognised Cardiff. Struggled with Belfast. Enjoyed that.

I got the top four % answers and the bottom 2 % answers, missed the rest in between. Tough one.

Can you do a "Countries by Religion" quiz just like you did the "Countries by Languages?"

'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.
