They're talking about us on Wikipedia

Actuallly they're trying to make their minds up whether to use the word Nairnshire for certain categories:

Here's what a bit of Wikitalk on the Wiki Project Scotland page looks like.

'Nairn' refers to the town, not the area/district/county. As the category is for the whole area, it is unhelpful and confusing to just call it 'populated places in Nairn'. The area is still commonly referred to as 'Nairnshire', and signposted as such by the council (see for example [2]). Or name it something like 'Nairn area' or 'Nairn district' etc. A similar name for the Inverness area category would be good, seeing as the committee area no longer exists, I would suggest just 'Inverness area'. --Vclaw (talk) 19:42, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Sigh Nairn is also a town.... Inverness district and Nairn district then?♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:52, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I think "area" to avoid confusion with the earlier "districts". Ben MacDui 20:52, 1 February 2011 (UTC)"
