Lothian Buses unveiled a fleet of new vehicles for its Edinburgh Bus Tour service with the help of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo’s 24-piece Piper’s Trail band and six Highland dancers.

The 30 open-top double-deck vehicles have been specially commissioned to meet environmental standards.

The buses will begin operation in the coming weeks across three of its five routes – Edinburgh Tour, Majestic Tour and City Sightseeing Tour.

Richard Hall, managing director for Lothian Buses, said: “These new vehicles have been designed and built to our exacting specification to ensure that we continue to delight and exceed the expectations of our tour passengers.”
