breadalbane-explorer-blackThe 2014 Explorer service will commence on Sunday 1st June and conclude on Sunday 19th October, operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays in the months of June, September and October and also on Saturdays in July and August.  Sweeney's of Muthill, near Crieff will run the clockwise Crieff – Comrie – St Fillans – Lochearnhead – Killin – Kenmore – Aberfeldy – Crieff route.  Kingshouse Travel of Balquhidder will operate an anti-clockwise Killin – Lochearnhead – St Fillans – Comrie – Crieff – Aberfeldy – Kenmore – Killin circuit.  The hop-on hop-off circular service calls at all of the major tourist attractions in the area.  In an extension of the service, the Explorer will operate four (4) complete circuits on operating days from 9am until after 9pm, allowing passengers, for example, to attend early evening performances at The Birks Cinema in Aberfeldy.

In addition to the Transport Scotland Bus Investment Fund, the 2014 service is funded by Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, Perth & Kinross Council, Tayside and Central Scotland Transport Partnership (tactran) and the Breadalbane Tourism Co-operative.

From 2014 onwards, the Breadalbane Tourism Co-operative also plans to promote several other “Rings” that will extend the geographic coverage and consequent economic benefit within the Breadalbane area, and further boost the Breadalbane brand.  These include a 4-7 day walking “Ring”, an 88-mile road bike “Ring”, a mountain biking “Ring” and a golf trail taking in four 18-hole and five 9-hole courses, plus a 9-hole par-3 course.  We will also promote the many angling opportunities in the area.
