Title: Buses on the Western Isles
Publisher: Amberley Publishing
Specification: 235mm x 165mm,96pp, softback
This album is mainly about buses on one of the Western Isles — the largest and northernmost one that divides into Lewis and Harris — rather than the entire archipelago that stretches south-westwards through North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist and Barra.
Richard Walter is a regular visitor and has observed the many changes to bus and coach operation in communities where 50 years ago the predominant service bus was a Willowbrook-bodied Bedford SB5 and the requirement for coaches was so limited that ideas of purchasing new or nearly new ones would have been banished without cause for a second thought.
