Stagecoach has repainted one of its Highland fleet into a heritage livery from the 1970s to mark the 50th anniversary of bus services on the Scottish island, reports Nick Larkin

To celebrate 50 years of bus services on Skye, Stagecoach Highland has repainted one of its buses in the same livery as could be seen in 1970 when the island’s routes were operated by Highland Omnibuses. Stagecoach has operated the services on Skye for the last 13 years, since the takeover of previous operator Rapsons in 2008, and its heritage-liveried bus will be seen on routes all across the island.
