In the olden days the road through Glenshiel, above Loch Cluanie, was so narrow that motorists needed to wait in a lay-by for vehicles travelling in the opposite direction to pass safely. This journey was considered quite hazardous at the time due to steepness of the road on the hillside and its winding nature.
One dark night a motorist was driving westward home on this very road when he spotted the headlights of an oncoming vehicle in the distance. Being courteous, he pulled into the nearest passing place to wait for the other car to pass. A good few minutes passed and the well-mannered motorist was still waiting for the approaching car. No other car appeared so he decided to continue onwards and thought perhaps the other car was waiting for him further along the road; or had perhaps broken down. Imagine the shock of the driver as there was no car to be seen on the road. It had completely disappeared!
This road was very isolated with no other roads or tracks leaving from it. Many other local people have experienced this same phenomenon when oncoming headlights simply vanish in a bend in the road, never to reappear.
