Tour Bus News at last:
We promised news of the new tour bus months ago! It has been a busy and exciting few months – sorry the updates have been… well, non-existent! But here is a brief summary:
The new tour bus arrived! It is very comfortable, lovely to drive and (I’m assured) a smooth ride for passengers. We have fitted an upgraded PA system for telling stories during the tours with a new mic and better speakers.
Robin Lawrie from KylePrint has been busy designing, preparing and applying the logo and various other print for the tour bus exterior and has done a great job as always. Agnes Mitchell has done a very professional photoshoot – you can see more of her shots used elsewhere on the web site and also on our FaceBook and Twitter pages.
The bus has been put to good use with weddings, private hires and various tours taking place. We do hope you’ll have the opportunity to warm one of its seats at some stage in the future! We have 16 passenger seats and parcel shelves for storing small bags, cameras, etc. There is extra room behind the rear seats for larger luggage.
I also have the appropriate licences and access to larger minibuses and coaches so do get in touch if you would like a quote for a larger party. The PA system is used mainly for talking on the standard set tours of Skye and Lochalsh but can also be used to play back from CDs, MP3 players and phones, etc which can connect by Bluetooth. Room is set aside in the rear of the tour bus for all the necessary gear to make sure our passengers can enjoy a hot drink and some baking during your tour (Though we do the baking at home!!)
