Glasgow to Oban Wednesday was forecasted to be a warm day in the west Highlands, as an area of high pressure over the UK would be centred there. I decided on a trip down the west coast from Fort William to Oban. Journey time 1 hour and 33 minutes. The bus from Buchanan Street left […]

Today’s (30 June, 2021) trip would take me from Inveraray to Tarbert, ferry to Portavadie, bus to Dunoon, and ferry to Gourock. The highlight of the day would be a one hour walk to a watchtower on a high promontory overlooking Scotland’s longest sea loch, Loch Fyne. It was the warmest day of the year, […]

Day Away on Scottish Ferries

Wullie Davidson’s Bus Pass Ramblings With news accounts of day trippers to England’s south coast beaches being packed like sardines into trains, and the story of the Millport ferry turning turtle due to the sheer weight of passengers (maybe some exaggeration there), I was beginning to feel left out. I hadn’t actually heard an official […]

This outing didn’t quite go to plan. Decided on the Glasgow-Inverness-Fort William-Glasgow run. There’s a change at Perth for the Inverness stage, for which the timetable allots 5 minutes, except the connecting bus had ‘broken down’, and there would be an hour’s delay, which was actually an hour and 15 minutes. Cut a long short, […]

Two destinations today (Saturday 14 September, 2019) –  North Berwick and Dunbar. I’m getting gallus. I’d never been to either. There was a good bus service to both from Edinburgh, a bus every half hour. I decided to go to North Berwick first, then on to Dunbar, before returning to Edinburgh. North Berwick North Berwick […]

Wullie Davidson’s Bus Pass Ramblings: St Andrews

I’ve taken a week of my annual leave this week, and decided to do an ‘easy one’.  Today, it was St Andrews, mainly because I’ve never been there, but also because a nurse who was attending me during a recent medical procedure said it was ‘fantastic’. At just 2 hours and 36 minutes from Glasgow, […]
