Edinburgh Bus Tours has welcomed a new addition to its team: ‘Cobbles’ the Scottie Dog, the company’s new official ambassador.

Named after Edinburgh’s setted streets, Cobbles will be greeting customers as they board one of the company’s four bus tours departing from St Andrew Square. Joining the team as the summer holidays kick off, Cobbles stands at nearly 6ft tall and wears the official Edinburgh Bus Tours tartan, produced by Kinloch Anderson in 2014.

Gaynor Marshall, Communications Director said: “Edinburgh Bus Tours is a five-star attraction and with the rise of staycations this summer, we offer a fun experience for all the family and with our kids go free offer on our city tours, we hope to see lots of people chasing Cobble’s tail this summer!”
