The Devil's Elbow, is a notorious double-hairpin bend at the summit of the Cairnwell Pass. Cairnwell is a mountain pass, in the Scottish Highlands. The Cairnwell Pass is the highest main road in the United Kingdom, and historically, the pass was a drover's route from the Lowlands to the Highlands. The road is often blocked by snow in the winter.

Royal Dutch Shell plc, commonly known as Shell, is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in the Netherlands and incorporated in the United Kingdom.

Created by the merger of Royal Dutch Petroleum and UK-based Shell Transport & Trading in 1907, in a move largely driven by the need to compete globally with Standard Oil. It is now the seventh largest company in the world as of 2016, in terms of revenue, and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors".

During the First World War, Shell was the main supplier of fuel to the British Expeditionary Force. It was also the sole supplier of aviation fuel and supplied 80 percent of the British Army's TNT. It also volunteered all of its shipping to the British Admiralty.
