Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. 

In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity. 

The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. Stay up to date on our Coronavirus page.


Whisky Festival is the next stop

26 Apr 2019

Stagecoach North Scotland is supporting the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival in 2019 with additional services operating between Elgin and Dufftown. 


Spirit of Speyside is now in its 20th year and is set to take place from 1st until 6th May. Following the success in previous years, the service 36 bus timetable between Elgin and Dufftown will be enhanced to allow visitors to explore all the festival has to offer with ease.

Stagecoach service 36 connects Elgin and Dufftown every hour Monday to Saturday and during the festival the service has been enhanced to operate on Sunday 5th May too. On May Day, Monday 6th May all bus services in Moray will operate to a Saturday service.


Those who have booked to attend one of over 500 inspired events held as part of the festival can also take advantage of discounted bus travel. A day ticket for bus travel in the Moray area will cost just £7 when a valid Whisky Festival event booking is shown to the bus driver. This ticket will connect from Dufftown to Elgin and as far as Forres and Keith.


David Liston, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: "It is fantastic to see the Whisky Festival going from strength to strength and we are delighted to be able to continue to provide additional transport options over the weekend for those visiting as well as our special discounted ticket. We hope that the additional bus connections on Sunday will ensure festival goers can enjoy an extra dram as we'll take care of the driving."
