-----, near the western tip of ------, has an appropriately end of the line feel; the bay here is guarded both by an ------- castle and the long island of --------, which protects the place somewhat from the prevailing winds.

Mainland

I thought you would get this one Lydia! I got the phrase from an oldish book (1960s), but I don't think the description can have changed much since it was written.

Presumably it's an ancient site - I thought maybe Bassai, but it doesn't fit the number of dots. Is it 'north east of the Peloponnese'?

Hmm - you're probanly right. I think my brain's gone funny. Somehow, I read north-east as north-west. Getting old, clearly!
