West Coast Motors has acquired Mull-based Bowman’s Tours with the company officially changing ownership on June 24, 2013.

MD of Campbeltown-based West Coast Motors Colin Craig said: “Bowman’s has played an important role in tourism on The Isle of Mull since the mid- 50s and we are looking forward to continuing this role through building on their success with the newly established Mull Coach Tours brand as part of our company.

“Offering these tours compliments our existing network of services in and around Oban, Argyll and Bute as well as those we operate to the area from Glasgow and our intention is to take advantage of these synergies to introduce more visitors to these stunning islands.”

Jim Bowman, MD, said: “Handing over a business which has been in the family for many years has been made less difficult by the knowledge that West Coast Motors, also family-owned, is ideal to carry on what we have strived to achieve. As well as transferring our staff over to their company, their plans include improving what we currently offer through investment and linking in with their own services.”
