Scours harbour — with nothing like a walrus to be seen? (5-6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

clean-shaven

Here is my best explanation:

'with nothing like a walrus to be seen?' is the definition.

(walrus moustache is a type of facial hair)

'scours harbour' is the subsidiary indication.

'scours' becomes 'cleans'.

'harbour' becomes 'haven' ('haven' can be a synonym of 'harbour').

'cleans'+'haven'='cleanshaven'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Another definition for clean-shaven that I've seen is "Unbearded".)
