PS It's Holy not Holly. It's on "Holy Island". The conventional pronunciation is a corruption.

I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

It's not uncommon for the coastguard to mispronounce place names. Both Clyde and eventually Belfast pronounce Islay as 'I lay', it's actual pronunciation is 'Aisle Lah', but woe betide anyone in a boat that needs help and gets something wrong...

My home town is Irvine, the 'e' is silent, but Belfast the last I heard pronounced it as the Irish and Americans do, as in, 'Ir vine'.
