Travelling to Scotland

This weekend sees the annual summer gathering of vehicles at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum at Lathalmond near Dunfermline. Both Peter and I are attending on Sunday. We're both planning to travel there using National Express coach services. Specifically we plan to catch Service 538 from Manchester Airport to Glasgow on Saturday morning as it's worked by a Trathens Neoplan, one of the batch taken out of service following the crash on the M4/M25 on 3 January 2007. We're staying overnight on Friday in a hotel in Stockport and over the weekend are using Edinburgh University as a base, with excellent accommodation fees.
I'm returning from Edinburgh to Hull on Monday, using Park's of Hamilton's Service 534, which is a route I've never done before. A full report will be posted when we return.
