Joseph Fergie had never heard of the Scottish town Kirkcudbright before last weekend. But after an Uber-ride gone wrong, he'll probably never forget it.
The 20 year-old found himself 100-miles away from home, after falling asleep inside an Uber ride home. Joseph had been clubbing with friends in Edinburgh when he decided to get a taxi back at closing time.
Posting a Snapchat video to friends, he said:
I've actually woke up on the other side of f****** Scotland mate – like no Edinburgh or that – the other side of f****** Scotland
Describing the experience as the "strangest day of his life", he told the Daily Record:
I woke up still drunk and when I saw sheep kicking about the countryside – I thought the guy had taken me to Musselburgh.
Much to his surprise, he had ended up in Kirkcudbright in the Dumfries and Galloway, a place he had never even heard of before.

Fergie then faced the challenge of finding his way home using bus and taxi services.
He returned home at 3.30pm after spending around £400 on the round trip.
