Highland coach operator D&E Coaches has seen its new Inverness sightseeing tour get off to a great start with 1600 passengers in its first month of business.

Good weather helped swell interest in the Inverness City Sightseeing, with locals and tourists alike taking advantage of the hop-on, hop-off service.

D&E Coaches owner Donald Mathieson said: “We’ve been delighted with the response to the City Sightseeing tours since we took over the service a little over a month ago. The Highlands is heavily reliant on tourism, so it has been great to see visitors start to return to the region over the last few weeks.

“What has been fantastic to see is that it’s not just newcomers to the region who are getting involved. We’ve noticed a great increase in locals utilising the service to explore the Highlands and become tourists in their own back yard.

“As we progress through the school holidays, there are amazing opportunities for families to holiday at home, and get out and about in Inverness and the Highlands to experience all the sights on their doorsteps.”

The Inverness City Sightseeing service offers passengers a guided tour of Inverness and the surrounding area, operating on two routes around the Highland capital which take in St Andrew’s Cathedral, Eden Court Theatre, the Caledonian Canal and Culloden Battlefield.
