A PUR­POSE-BUILT de­pot on Skye is help­ing a bus com­pany serve cus­tomers bet­ter.

Stage­coach, which em­ploys 20 peo­ple on the is­land, has in­vested more than £750,000 in the new base for its 15 is­land buses.

Steve Walker, manag­ing direc­tor, Stage­coach North Scot­land, said: ‘ We are de­lighted to open the new de­pot which has good on­site fa­cil­i­ties for engi­neer­ing and driv­ing staff. The pre­vi­ous de­pot had limited op­por­tu­nity to main­tain ve­hi­cles so this will make our oper­a­tions in Skye much more ef­fi­cient.’
