But don’t worry that I’ll get too lost in my own world; driving on a one-track road is a social affair. The road is only wide enough for one car, but along each side are “lay-bys” where one car lays by while the other car continues on the road. There are all kinds of unwritten rules about who lays-by, who may have to back up, who goes by, etc., all of which are acquired intuitively the minute you enter a one-track road. I felt in solidarity with each driver I passed as I lifted my fingers off the steering wheel to wave. Very subtle, kind of like a wink, but that’s one of the rules. It took me a couple of times to master the wave, but once I did, Aye, I knew I was one of them
Oh, I enjoyed homemade soup and a sandwich at a shop along the way. I sat outside in the middle of one of the many most beautiful views in Scotland. In Elgol I found out about boat trips across the bay to Loch Coruisk at one of the feet of The Cullins. A trip for another day.
