This driver’s ability to reverse appears to be going backwards – as they repeatedly run off the road attempting to find a passing point.
The poor driver was desperately trying to back up and find a spot to let traffic past, but instead ended up in a ditch with two wheels in the air.
In unbelievable dash cam footage the person behind the wheel can be seen attempting to reverse but struggling to follow the direction of the road.
Confronted with a queue of oncoming traffic, the white Hyundai i30 zigzags across Sheader Road on Skye while completely missing a designated passing spot.
The driver ends up driving through long grass and tree branches before eventually opting to pull into a drive to let the other vehicles past.
Gordon Willoughby, 57, caught the embarrassing moment on Wednesday morning, but had a lot of sympathy for the confused presumed tourist.
After witnessing the panicking driver Mr Willoughby, from Uig, admits if there was no one behind him he would have reversed to the nearest passing point himself, which was about 200 yards away.
The grandfather-of-one said: “It did take me by surprise and I was shocked but I guess when you are not familiar with an area you can struggle and make mistakes.
“The driver didn’t look too flustered, but I think he was embarrassed.
“The poor driver actually drove past a passing place during the struggle. At one point he ended up with his wheel in the air which was worrying.
“I had a car and a minibus behind me so it was difficult for me to reverse to let him past.
“My passing place was also a bit further back than his was as well so it could’ve been more dangerous.
“In the end he drove onto a drive, which isn’t a big issue as we were able to pass but I really did feel sorry for him.
“When I drove past him I tried to smile and wave at him, but I think he was just really embarrassed.”
According to Mr Willoughby tourists often run into problems trying to find passing places to pull over on the narrow lanes.
Mr Willoughby said: “Unfortunately it is a common occurrence. I live around that area, so I drive on that road daily.
“Some parts of the path are just mud from other cars doing the same, so it is really dangerous.
“I know we need more passing places on that stretch of road as this is becoming more common.
“Unfortunately visitors aren’t aware of where the passing places are and sometimes miss them.”
