The eight wheeler 32 ton truck that empties the bottle banks at Applecross manages over the pass😱.
I have always been under the impression that you just stop alongside the passing place if it's at the other side of the road. Only pull into the passing places on your side of the road. Obviously this can change depending on circumstances.
It would not be the first time I have stopped at a passing place only to be overtaken by following traffic then had to wait ubtill one or the other gave way and reversed.

I remember going round the peninsula when the road was first completed in the mid 70,s at that time many of the single track roads were two strips of tarmac with grass between you could travel for what seemed like hours before meeting a car, a fortnight in the Highlands and perhaps see only 4 or 5 campers rare enough to stop in the road for a chat with no other traffic. Good times indeed most villages welcomed you and brought small children out to see the wee home on wheels.
The Snow Blower was taken away a few years ago its on the east coast somewhere it was deemed too expensive to run..
It was so misty I could not see the drops.
How time flies, this was two year ago!!
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
Went to Applecross a couple of years ago as part of a tour of Scotland. Bit wet and misty going over but no real problems, a few folk didn’t seem to grasp the concept of passing places but hey ho, we’re not all perfect. Then we arrived and called at the pub/hotel. What a bunch of miserable unhelpful folk they were. Ordered drinks, asked for menu, asked if we could stop overnight and were told in no uncertain terms that we couldn’t. Car park was maybe a quarter full. Sacked it and spent the night in Toscaig.
