Peninsula not Peninsular - Whoops!

I received a very nice e-mail today, politely pointing out that my spelling of this word was wrong.

Wrong on ScottishSeaKayakTrail.com. Wrong on the Pesda Press website. And quite possibly wrong in my book, which is close to being at final proof stage. Or rather, was close.

I'd used 'peninsular', which is the form of the adjective, when I should have used 'peninsula' which is the noun. Pesda Press are on the case.

"Sorry to be a bit pedantic, but I hate to see good quality, interesting websites and books 'spoiled' by spelling mistakes", wrote my correspondent.

I'm delighted she did.
