Highland Traffic Patterns

While major highways in the Highlands are two lane, many of the roads are a single lane for traffic going both ways. This car is pulled into a passing place to allow us to get by.

All the pictures in this post were taken over Shaun's shoulder through the front windshield (windscreen).

I figured out that if the passing place is on the left, then you wait for the coming car. But if there is one on each side one after the other--no idea who has the right of way here.

But I believe the sheep have the right of way no matter what.

Oh my goodness.....I remember this! Scared the crap outta me! LOL! Couldn't get over how fast the locals would drive and scoot over. I hated it most when our lane was right next to a Loch....scary.
