Default "Scottish" Lanes?

In the Outer Hebrides, "lane swimming" is provided for by combining lanes in the pool and swimmers swimming clcockwise circuits of the resulting area i.e up one side, across the end, down the other side, across the end, etc.

Of course any sort of turn, open or tumble gives riae to collisions, and effectively only 25m intervals are possible. I found it bizzarre to say the least.

Has anyone swum in any pools outside of Scotland where this approach is taken? Or perhaps the approach is limited to the Outer Hebrides.
