Single Lane Road Scotland

About 70% to 80% of the roads on the Isle of Mull are so-called "single lane roads". There are some specialities to this: First, you drive in the center of the road, being always prepared to halt at the next "passing place". Second, and I know this may sound silly, please remember to always stop on the left side. When using single lane roads it's easy to forget that you are in a left-driving country. Third, please let the cars behind you pass at the passing places. Just because you are admiring the surroundings, it does not mean that everybody has to drive along at 20 mph. Especially the locals often have a job to do and know the roads inside-out. Having said that, fourth, do not speed to much - there may always be sheep around the next corner (see photo), or another fast vehicle coming up.
