In 1985 the Scottish Bus Group decided to split the Border and East Lothian operations of Eastern Scottish from the rest of the company. A new company named Lowland Scottish, based in Galashiels, would take over the operations, using a new livery of yellow and green. It was hoped the new company could tailor demand and supply in the area, which only had a population of just over 100,000. The staff and management successfully purchased the company during the sell-off of the Scottish Bus Group.
With a superb collection of previously unpublished images, David Devoy tells the story of another popular operator that has now sadly vanished from Scotland's roads.
