Always drive on the left – watch out for the arrows which are there to help remind you!
If you see something that you want to look at, find a suitable place and STOP to look at it. Do not stop in passing places.
Passing places are identified by signs.
Give way to traffic coming up-hill on single track roads. They have right of way.
If you are out for a quiet run and traffic is behind you, pull in and allow them to pass. They will probably be local and need to get somewhere in a hurry.
On single track roads, when you come to a passing place which is on your right, wait on the left-hand side of the road to allow the oncoming traffic to pass.
Do not park in passing places.
A lot of single track roads are unfenced and you will therefore find sheep, cattle and deer at the side and on the road. Be aware of this, watch out for warning signs.
Take particular care if you see a sheep on one side of the road and a lamb on the other. Nine times out of ten the lamb will run across the road to join its mother!
