Stagecoach is proposing a number of timetable changes to take effect from February next year.

Feedback on the plans is being invited between now and December 19.

The company says routes have been simplified and community council feedback has been factored into the plans.

Proposed revisions include:

Increased frequency for residents on Balloan Road, Inverness

Frequent service introduced to Culloden Battlefield and Cawdor Castle.

Increased frequency between Craig Dunain and Inverness city centre.

Direct links from Fairfield Road and Scorguie to Raigmore Hospital and Inverness Shopping Park via the Westlink.

Connections introduced from Ardersier to Inverness Airport and Inverness city centre, seven days a week.

Increased frequency between Inverness and Kiltarlity/Muir of Ord.

Frequency to Fortrose Chanonry Park increased to and from Inverness.

New local service between Alness and Invergordon.

Service 25X to use double deck vehicles to cater for increased levels of demand in the summer months with cruise visitors.

David Beaton, managing director at Stagecoach Highlands said: “We have been reviewing our network ahead of the new bus priority opening between Inverness Campus and the Retail Park. We really want to make travelling by bus as easy as possible for the local communities and we believe these proposed changes will do just that.”
