The clubber was charged £395.85 for the journey.

Joseph Fergie, 20, fell asleep in an Uber after a night out. Waking up, he found himself more than 100 miles from his home, on the other side of Scotland surrounded by sheep, reports Daily Mail

The man got a taxi at 5:14 for 3km journey from the ATIK nightclub in Edinburgh to his home in Leith, Scotland. At 8.30am, the taxi driver woke Fergie up and asked to leave the car. The clubber was charged £395.85 for the journey.

Fergie found himself in an unknown location surrounded by sheep. He managed to establish his location only after publishing a SOS-message on Snapchat. As it turned out, the taxi driver went 112 miles along the A702 to Kirkcudbright in Dunfries and Galloway, Scotland. Apparently, the drunk passenger told a wrong address to the driver. 

It took another seven hours via several buses and trains for Fergie to finally arrive back in Edinburgh.
