I picked this up at Inverness bus station but there are other stops you can start at. I bought red ticket but as I had more time I bought the blue in addition. You can pay the driver directly. Very interesting to see the sites. I had a half a day to spare so I stopped for and hour at both River Ness and the battle fields. Worth doing it there were even locals on it enjoying the sites!

Kids enjoyed it although I thought the descriptive audio poor. So many things could have been included. Didn’t even mention Eden Court!! That’s awful. Also the descriptions were not clear and often not at the correct places. Get the drivers to talk as they can inject some fun into the day. We should have been told to ring bell if we wanted to stop. Been on many red buses and don’t think we had to ring the bell. We had a great day nevertheless.
