How many of us grew up saying they wanted to be a bus driver? How many of us actually did it? Peter Findlay can answer yes to both questions. This book reflects the author's interest in Northern Scottish and its predecessor, from childhood through to actually working with the company from their Buckie depot, covering the fleet from the early 1960s through to the late 1980s and including vehicles the author travelled on, drove or just photographed. Buses in the striking yellow livery of Northern Scottish and, before that, W. Alexander & Sons (Northern), operated for thirty years between 1961 and 1991 across a largely rural area from depots in places such as Aberdeen, Montrose, Fraserburgh, Buckie, Elgin and Keith. In this book, Peter Findlay gives the reader a fascinating insight into those days.
