Highland highway etiquette

Working in the remote Scottish highlands brings challenges distinctly different from those encountered in the city.

Driving devilishly narrow single track roads requires special consideration of folk and flocks you might meet at any turn.

The free ranging sheep in this short clip belong to my crofter friend, who was moving them from one common grazing ground to another. He was far ahead of the troupe when I encountered them, yet highland highway etiquette is simple: give way to a flock on the move. Pulling into a passing place, I filmed a small section of their journey to pastures new.
