Highland Transport Co. Bus

This was one of three vehicles which were registered to the Highland Transport Company on 26 May 1936. It carried the registration ST8653 and was numbered 69 in their fleet. It was an Albion SpPW141 with a Cowieson B32R body (a 32 bus seats with a rear entrance/exit). It passed to Highland Omnibuses on formation in February 1952 and was renumbered A69 but was withdrawn before the end of the year.

Highland Transport Company was formed in April 1930 to take over Inverness & District Motor Services Ltd which had begun operating in 1925. The company was nationalised in 1952 under the name Highland Omnibuses. Their headquarters were at Bank Lane, Inverness.
