One thing that surprised me was "61 miles from a lighthouse" as (and I don't know this) I'd have guessed that some of the central parts of England would be getting on for 100 miles from the sea.
But my geography of that part of the world isn't great so I'm probably wrong...

Several of the calculations seem to be including the Mull as part of 
mainland Britain, ie churches and golf courses. It is definitely an island.

As for public toilets, must be a few missing from the map. I think 
there's toilets in Thurso and Bettyhill, though it has been a few years 
since I visited these.
