Having visited friends in Achmelvich today [for those who've never been up that way, Google Earth to see - it's lovely on a beautiful day like today's been ] I was heading back to the main road from their house, on the stretch of single-track road, following behind another car. He encountered another car coming the opposite way, between passing places. Car 2 attempted to reverse to the passing place on her side, and in doing so managed to drop her o/s front wheel down into a water-filled ditch . She was really lucky as she just missed half a dozen big stones...., but was stuck fast, having 'beached' the underside of her car. Cars began to build up behind her [heading home for tea? ] so no-one was going anywhere. My friends had told me that the last time similar happened it was 2 x campervans who thought they could squeeze past one another but ended up with one dropped off the road on one side and the other did the same on his side . It took 3.5 hours for the recovery wagon to get to them [think other vehicles with no chance of turning on the narrow road] and get the road open again. Half a dozen of us decided we could get her moving again, and with n/s doors open and two standing on the cills and the rest lifting & pushing she managed to get back onto the road again. No fluid leaks from underneath, so she was a lucky girl , and we all went happily on our way. Just shows that some people have no idea on how to reverse safely, and I'm not casting aspirations of the ability of female drivers here, some men are just as bad if not worse. Can't be too careful on these very narrow roads up here.
