The summer holidays will soon be here and that means finding six weeks’ worth of things to do with the kids. If you’re exploring East Scotland as a family this summer, why not add a splash of colour to your plans with Stagecoach?
Stagecoach’s award winning Express City Connect network operates high-quality, frequent coach services to Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Livingston, Perth and across Fife. The vehicles on the Express network offer comfortable seats, free WiFi, air conditioning, device charging points and fantastic views.
Your family day out doesn’t have to break the bank either. Take a look at the Stagecoach website for information on group tickets, which allows travel for two adults and two children, or one adult and three children.
That means you can hop on as many Stagecoach services within your chosen zone as you like, including both local bus services and coach services on the Express City Connect network. For tickets under £30 you can even pay using contactless!
There’s so much to see and do in East Scotland for all the family – from aquatic adventures at the Olympia leisure centre in Dundee, to a day in the great outdoors exploring the spectacular ruins of Stonehaven’s Dunnottar Castle, just a short walk from the town.
Or perhaps you’re keen for a trip to the beach? Hop on a bus to Fife, which has fourteen award-winning beaches from St Andrews to Aberdour. Sun cream, bucket and spade at the ready!
For days when the weather isn’t great, there are museums aplenty in East Scotland, including the new V&A Dundee, Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Aberdeen Maritime Museum, Scotland’s Secret Bunker near Anstruther and the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
Wherever your adventure takes you, easily keep track of your bus using the Stagecoach app. With live bus times and a journey planner, it’s now even easier to get around by bus.
