Lose a thousand on a Scottish isle (6)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'lose' is the definition.
(I know that mislay is a type of lose)

'a thousand on a scottish isle' is the wordplay.
'a thousand on a scottish' becomes 'm' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
'isle' becomes 'islay' (Scottish island).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for mislay that I've seen before include "Put something aside and forget where" , "Set in wrong location" , "Lose (something)" , "Put (something) where it can't be found" , "Lose (an item)" .)
