Stagecoach are proposing timetable changes for Inverness and the Black Isle.

Stagecoach is proposing a number of changes to Highland timetables that will come into effect from February next year.

Members of the public can give their views on the proposals between now and Thursday, December 19.

The firm says routes have been simplified with feedback from community councils being factored into the plans.

Proposed revisions include:

Increased frequency for residents on Balloan Road, Inverness.

Frequent service introduced to Culloden Battlefield and Cawdor Castle.

Increased frequency between Craig Dunain and Inverness city centre.

Direct links from Fairfield Road and Scorguie to Raigmore Hospital and Inverness Shopping Park via the Westlink.

Connections introduced from Ardersier to Inverness Airport and Inverness city centre, seven days a week.

Increased frequency between Inverness and Kiltarlity/Muir of Ord.

Frequency to Fortrose Chanonry Park increased to and from Inverness.

New local service between Alness and Invergordon.

Service 25X to use double deck vehicles to cater for increased levels of demand in summer months.

David Beaton, managing director at Stagecoach Highlands, said: “We have been reviewing our network ahead of the new bus priority opening between Inverness Campus and the Retail Park. We really want to make travelling by bus as easy as possible for local communities and we believe these proposed changes will do just that.”

Views on changes should be emailed to nscotmarketing@stagecoachbus.com

A public drop-in session will also be held from 2-6pm on Wednesday, December 11 in the Spectrum Centre, Inverness.
