Single Track Roads

So apparently the Scottish countryside has single track roads. For those of us who have never driven over there, the whole idea seems frightening. One lane, two-way traffic, plus the possibility of cows and sheep. Their solution to this is pull-off areas. If they are on your left hand side, you should be the one to slow down and pull over. Sounds simple huh? Not to mention we'll already be driving on the left hand side...sheesh. I really only foresee this being a problem in two places: the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Mull. The Isle of Mull should be extra fun because the main road going from the ferry from Oban to the ferry that takes you to Iona can have quite the tourist traffic....on a one lane road. Yay! I'm just thankful that we're paying extra for an automatic. It would be hilarious to manage all that and try and drive a manual.

I found this photo on Flickr, it's from Skye. Nice.
