Broons Buses - Bus timetable for Kinloch Rannoch and Rannoch Station to Pitlochry.
The local Pitlochry based bus company, Elizabeth Yules Buses has asked us to publish the following two time tables:-
A new for 2012, hop-on, hop-off bus service will be launched this summer as a pilot scheme linking Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Killin, Comrie and Crieff. The registered service will run 6 times a day, 4 days per week from the 17th of July through the 16th of September operated by Kingshouse Travel of Balquidder.
Every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday buses will cover the circular route 3 times daily from Lochearnhead to Aberfeldy via Killin and Kenmore, while there will be another 3 daily services that complete the route in the opposite direction, ensuring that passengers do not have too long to wait at any one destination. There will also be an early evening return service connecting Aberfeldy, Kenmore and Killin for diners who wish to drink without having to drive or those who cycle but want a lift back.
The complete circular route takes about 3 hours, the buses will also be able carry a limited number of bicycles for touring cyclists who decide to get a lift part way.
Fares will be priced at £9 per adult for all-day ticket or £15 for a two-day ticket and there will be concessions, family rates and standard point-to-point fares with discounts for local or frequent short distance users. www.facebook.com/breadalbaneexplorer
