Sheltered side (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lee

'sheltered side' is the definition.
(as in lee side, the side sheltered from wind)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for lee that I've seen before include "Towards the side away from the wind (naut)" , "Revolutionary general" , "Confederate general" , "Protection" , "actor" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, the Evening Standard, The Independent, The Mirror and The Times.
