I was contacted by  our local Highland Council office to let me know that Shiel Buses will be using a double-decker for the first few weeks. Both the Transport Office and Sheil buses know how I, and Parent Council on your behalf, feel about the use of double-deckers on the high road. However, I have been reassured that this will only be for 2 -3 weeks and really is a temporary and one-off solution, while Sheil Buses buy a new single decker 70 seat bus. This has been apparently difficult to source and so there has been a bit of a delay. I have also been reassured that the double-decker they will use is of a very high specification and quality. Having seen the buses in use in Fort William and given guarantees that this really is a temporary solution I am reassured. However, I feel I need to pass this information on to you all. If you require any further information, please contact Mike Cooper on mike.cooper@highland.gov.uk
