Do the coaches have Rest Rooms/Toilets on board?

We are operated by Edinburgh Coach Lines Ltd and their large fleet of coaches allows us to be flexible with the coach size depending on demand. The full size coaches all have Rest Room/Toilets, but not the smaller size. In the summer months the Loch Ness tour always operates with a full sized, air conditioned coach with toilet facilities. The other tours can vary and we cannot guarantee a toilet will be available on the vehicle.

Are there comfort stops during the tour?

Yes, we make frequent stops during the tours, most of which have toilet facilities

No the tours are in English (Scottish) only. However, we do offer a short written tour description in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Chinese.

Loch Ness and Magical Highlands tours return to Edinburgh at approx.8 pm. All other tours by 6pm

Will we be dropped of at the Hotel/Guest Houses when we return at night?

No, our policy is to drop off on-route through the town centre, however in most cases we are able to drop most passengers very close to their hotel. Your driver can discuss this with you on day of departure. Confirmed stops are in the West End, Princes Street and the top of Leith Street (where possible depending on roadworks).

Are children allowed on the coach?

We do not allow children aged 8 years or under to travel on our tours. Children must pay the standard full price ticket and occupy their own seat.
