Coach Hire Party

A Really Nice Day Out!

Day coach hire trip with the 'Oddfellows' group from Edinburgh on the 26th July 2019.

Edinburgh Pick Up

The day trip started at 9:00 am on a bright sunny morning in Edinburgh. I picked the 'Oddfellows' group up in our luxury standard 'TURAS' 29 seater coach (as seen in the photo). The party settled into the comforts of the coach and on this beautiful sunny day looked forward to the day ahead. We preceded to head out of Edinburgh and onto the A9 road, towards Linlithgow and Stirling.

At around 10:00 am we arrived at our destination, the historic Drummond Castle & Gardens in Perthshire. Time for a quick photoshoot by the coach and then onto the tour.
