"There's a Place" The Beatles

When cycling from Edzell to Aboyne in the North East of Scotland I came across this hamlet called Finzean. Well, how would you pronounce it? Is it as in Finzeen or Fintseen or maybe Finyeen. No, it is pronounced as FING-IN, as in sing-in. Here is an explanation of how the area got its name and pronunciation.

Thanks for an educational post! I would have made a MESS of trying to pronounce that name!
